fictional book day 13.

Ah- I have just the book. It is a book called Kristin Lavransdatter by Sigrid Undset. I was named after the main character. My mom's favorite too! I loved it because it takes place during the Middle Ages and it follows the life of a woman living in Scandinavia. A gorgeous novel, the main character has 8 kids, one of her children dying in infancy and she has miscarriages and a stillbirth. There are many references to stillbirths with other characters as well. That does stand out to me now, but I loved it before Jolene.
