too weak for anything else.

Now it was the custom in Norway for the spinning woman to take back to the different farms the wool she had spun, and for the farmers' wives to praise her work, treat her to something good to eat and drink, pay her, and then give her directions about the way the next spinning was to be done.

I really enjoyed reading this book.

It is like the Norwegian version of "Heidi"

The story follows Lisbeth Longfrock from
the age of a little girl to a young woman.
