Vibeke Olsson's song from the sawmill ’is a social-historical novel about child labor in Sweden. The sequel to "The daughter of the wood saw".
Northern Sweden, 1882. The fourteen-year-old Britta works as a rib saw at the sawmill, while her mother trains her to become a laundress. Work comes first, and God watches over everything, that's how Britta was raised. But she notices that her thoughts wander more and more often. Why does Nilsson look at her so strangely and why does her buddy Jorma do so differently than usual? Then a tragic accident happens, as a result of which Britta's life will never be the same again.
"You put little Britta directly in your heart, and if possible in your arms." - Irma Joubert, author of "The girl from the hidden village"
