About The Bell in the Lake:

Norway, 1880. Astrid dreams of a life beyond marriage, children, and working the land to the end of her days. The young pastor Kai Schweigaard comes into her life when he takes over the small parish of Butangen, with its 700-year-old stave church and its legendary bells whose history is tied to Astrid’s ancestors. It is said that the bells ring when danger is imminent.

But Pastor Schweigaard wants to tear down the church and invites talented architecture student Gerhard Schönauer from Dresden to oversee the removal of the church and its reconstruction in the German city. Astrid is determined that the bells must stay in her village. Then Astrid falls in love with Gerhard. He is so different from the young men in Butangen: modern, cosmopolitan, elegant. She must make a choice: for her homeland and the pastor, or for an uncertain future in Germany. Then the bells begin to ring…
