December Reading Circle, December 13, 7:30 PM
As long as people could remember, the stave church’s bells had rung over the isolated village of Butangen, Norway. Cast in memory of conjoined twins, the bells are said to ring on their own in times of danger. In 1879, young pastor Kai Schweigaard moves to the village and has already made arrangements for the sale of the stave church with its bells. It will be dismantled and taken to Germany for reconstruction there. A young woman, Astrid Hekne, is attracted to the pastor and begins to imagine her role as the pastor’s wife. But when the young German student arrives to make sketches of the church as it is dismantled, she is also attracted to him and sees a potential way out of her village. She is suddenly caught between past and future, and dark forces begin to come into play. A complicating factor is that it was Astrid’s ancestors who gave the bells to the church and she wants them to stay in the village
