Excerpt from Od's Way, Vol. 1: A Novel On Bjornson's return to Norway from Paris, he settled down at his country estate of Aulestad, in Gudbrandsdal. Here he composed another long novel, which he completed in the summer of 1889, and which was published in Copenhagen towards the end of that year, under the title of Pa guds veje ("In Gods Way"). This novel was at once perceived to be among the best things that BjCrnson had composed, and to be superior in point of art and arrangement to any of his previous romances. While it was perfectly original in subject and treatment, the authors residence among the French had evidently given him a new lightness and sureness of touch. As, in the case of "The Heritage of the Kurts," some readers had complained of the excess of pedagogy, so in that of "In God's Way" there were some who objected to the insistence Ion medical detail, and the language of the sickroom, which gave a clinical character to the later sections of the book. Some one said that the last chapters "simply stink of antiseptics." But to say this was to misconceive Bjornson's grave and sympathetic purpose, which was to display the hand of God, moving in a mysterious way, and guiding His children through the most perilous paths of manifold human suffering.
