A wonderful book!!
I have only recently discovered thyra bjorn. i recently read her most beautiful book, papa's wife, and am now a passionate fan. on a whim, i purchased the golden acre, along with her other books, which, unlike the golden acre, are part of a series. the golden acre, is amazing. beautiful and really a message from god for us all to strive for our "golden acres" (you will have to read to know what that it is.) as a woman, i am profoundly influenced by the godliness and decency and even cleanliness of bjorn's women, with their magical norwegian heritage. very, very special.
