Katinka is the stationmaster's wife in a sleepy Danish provincial town and her domestic languour is disrupted by the arrival of Huus, the new foreman on a nearby farm. Unlike her boorish husband, Huus is attentive and sensitive and despite her best efforts Katinka falls in love with him. Her whole life is turned upside down by an intense passion she had never expected to experience and which has unforeseen consequences. W. Glyn Jones' masterful translation allows us to read in English for the first time one of the neglected classics of Scandinavian Literature.
