Sigrid Undset was Norwegian novelist and a Nobel Prize winner, who first came to international limelight for her historical trilogy titled ‘Kristin Lavransdatter’. Born as the eldest child of an internationally known archeologist, she had always been interested in history and literature; but her father’s premature death deprived her of university education. Instead, she took secretarial job and continued with her studies. Her first historical novel, set up in medieval Denmark, could not find any publisher. Undeterred she began to write about the life in contemporary Norway, which became very popular. Therefore, she left her job to pursue her passion for writing. However, it was not until her separation from her painter husband that she could concentrate on writing her famous trilogy. She had spent the intervening years looking after own children as well as her three stepchildren. Indeed, it was a tough time for her as two of these children were handicapped; yet she carried on with her work. Ultimately, it was the Second World War, which sapped all her energies. To evade persecution she fled to the USA and came back only after Norway was liberated. By that time, she was fully exhausted and stopped writing all together.
