Excerpt from In God's Way: A Novel; Translated From the Norwegian
As a rule it was only the very worst westerly storms that could dash the spray so high but now it had reached the top though the air was so calm. No one but him had ever seen such a sight.
Away in the far west, sky and sea seemed melting into one in the glow of the setting sun. It was like some golden realm of peace and all the deep sea-waves, with their white crests rolling up from as far as the eye could reach, were like banished rebels they came crowding onward, protesting, million-mouthed.
The contrast of colouring was now at its height no more blending of lights and shades, not even a red shimmer made its way across. Titer: was a rich, warm glow, lure a cold, blue-black lay over the sea and snowy coast all that could be seen of the town from the hill-side dwin dled away and seemed to grow less and less every time the boy turned to look inland. But each time he looked he felt himself grow more restless and uneasy; surely that was a bad sign could more be going to happen His imagination was startled, and, tired as he was from want of sleep, he had no strength to fight against this fear.
