About the author (1965)

Sandel's best-known work is an autobiographical trilogy---Alberta and Jacob (1926), Alberta and Freedom (1931), and Alberta Alone (1939), which describes with insight and honesty the coming to maturity of a small-town Norwegian girl. Trained as a painter, Sandel has an eye for telling detail. She is also an attentive student of human nature. Sandel's short stories often explore with great sympathy the lives of society's outcasts and underdogs. She is a masterful prose stylist of marvelous delicacy whose work rarely fails to move. Her insight into the psyches of women and artists is especially acute and justly praised.
