Elin Tinholt's novel The Sisters at Stenberg is the poem about the lives of the Weidemann sisters who lived at Stenberg County Guard.
In the novel we take you back to the summer of 1840. Stenberg County Guard is secluded, surrounded by woods and a park in English landscape style. Here the sisters Bolly, Nahyda and Amalia live quiet lives, characterized by routine and predictability. His father, Eidsvollman Lauritz Weidemann, is a powerful patriarch, respected and revered by all. The district's daughters are privileged, but live under a very strict regime.
The Sisters of Stenberg is a novel about love and the conditions, power, power and oppression of love at a time when the daughters of the family were subject to strict conventions and did not have their own voice. It has been claimed that Camilla Collett drew inspiration from the lives of the three daughters at Stenberg when she wrote the daughters of the County Governor in 1854–55. The young, life-affirming Camilla is one of the characters we meet in the Sisters at Stenberg.
We meet author Elin Tinholt in conversation with Hans Tarjei Skaare about the dangerous love.
