      In 1876, O.E Rolvaag was born in a small fishing village in northern Norway about five miles from the Arctic Circle In 1896, he emigrated to South Dakota to work on his uncle s farm He later enrolled in St Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota, graduating with a bachelor s degree in 1905, and becoming a professor of Norwegian literature at the school the following year In 1910, he earned a master s degree at St Olaf.Two years earlier, he had become an American citizen and had married Jennie Mari [...]

      This is the final title in O.E Rolvaag s trilogy about a Norwegian immigrant family in the Dakota Territory Here we find Peder Victorious dealing with married life, his plans for the family farm, politics and religion Especially religion and the way it influences the lives of the entire community Whose God is the correct one to worship Do we stay faithful to the God our fathers believed in or switch to a different one Maybe even create our own It is not absolutely necessary to read Giants in the [...]

      Translated by Trygve M Ager Biro inscription inside cover Christmas 1991, from Bev Description Susie Doheny, an Irish Catholic, and Peder Holm, a Norwegian Lutheran, fall in love and marry in South Dakota in the 1890s Soon their marriage is tested by drought, depression, and family bickering Susie believes they are being tested by their fathers God.Peder blames Susie for the timidity of her beliefs Susie fears Peder s pride and skepticism When political antagonism grows between the Norwegian and [...]

    4. Charlie George on said:

      This is a moving but lesser known tale following the classics Giants in the Earth and Peder Victorious set on the high South Dakota steppe during the depression of the 1890 s Scant attention is given to describing the spartan scenery or meager lifestyle Instead, the story is a deeply emotional look at the issues plaguing a family from different religions They endure not only economic hardship, but drought, injury, and death of loved ones Primarily, they struggle to tolerate one anothers religiou [...]

      A fitting finale to the trilogy of the Great Plains that began with Giants in the Earth, this book follows the adulthood of second generation Norwegian immigrants who settle in South Dakota Each book centers on a fateful conflict this one is on the ever present friction between the beliefs or, rather, the nonbelief of the protagonist, Peder Holm, and his Irish Catholic wife, Susie As ever, Rolvaag breathes life into his characters, no less the women than the men I wholeheartedly recommend the se [...]

    6. Cindy on said:

      I would like to tell the author could you write an ending, please I like resolution I stayed up late to see if the rainmaker could make it rain for 700 dollars Peder wanted to run him out of town for being a fake There is no ending here, on to the next crisis This book read like short stories put together in a 300 page novel This is the last book in the prairie saga that started with Giants in the Earth Peder and Hans are grown men Beret was their mother She went crazy for awhile and got better [...]

    7. Daniel on said:

      This is a remarkable book.Certainly this appeals to me on many levels As a person of Scandinavian descent, I m enjoying reading books which appeal to my heritage As a Scandinavian Lutheran who has married an Irish Catholic, I was able to view the relationship, particularly the religious discussions, with understanding and empathy Certainly the times are different now, and such mixed marriages have taken place, but it was not particularly common among the immigrants of the 19th century.What stru [...]

    8. Mark on said:

      I think it s safe to say that virtually no one reads Ole Rolvaag any, but he had his shining moments in the 1920s and 1930s, writing out of his own experience about the Norwegian emigrants who pioneered many of the farms in what was then the Dakota territory in the late 1800s.This book is the third in his trilogy of the Holm family By the time of this book, the family patriarch has died, and his son, Peder Holm, is a vigorous young farmer with a new family and new ideas.He has married Susie Dohe [...]

    9. Lori L (She Treads Softly) on said:

      If you haven t read the previous two books, Giants in the Earth and Peder Victorious and plan to in the future, do not read this review.Their Fathers Gods is, like Peder Victorious, a Norwegian novel translated into English thus, as Agar, the translator notes, some of the actual mood art of the original is lost This is the last book Rolvaag wrote featuring the Holms family In this novel he tackles the mixed marriage of Catholic Susie and Lutheran Peder, as well as the political antagonism betwee [...]

    10. Guy on said:

      Another classic from the author of Giants in the Earth, this carries forward the story of Norwegian farmers in the 1890s Dakotas Set against the backdrop of the 1896 US presidential election, a young farm couple struggle against challenges they set themselves a mixed marriage in culture, language, and religion and ones beyond their control drought, falling farm prices The tension in the book seems to me no spoiler, I think whether their inner resources of character are great and strong enough to [...]

    11. MarieAsh-Evans on said:

      Loved this book not as much as Giants in the Earth but almost Mr Rolvaag is one of my favorite authors and I have to rate almost all of his books five stars Great historical novel of the Scandinavian immigrant experience in our great prairie staates a subject close to my heart Mr Rolvaag is the best chronicler of their experience that I have read It can also be read as a study of in human contradiction.

    12. Jenny on said:

      Their Fathers God is a story about a young, married couple in 1890s South Dakota who have an interdenominational marriage Lutheran and Catholic Can their marriage and love survive despite the contention between the groups culturally and politically My father in law suggested I read this book I suppose I d rate it 2.5 stars, although I was impressed that in some ways it was fairly current Overall, though, I found the book to be dull.

    13. MarieAsh-Evans on said:

      Good book interesting study in human nature I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in a good story this one happens to be about the Scandinavian immigrant experience.

    14. Rachelfm on said:

      A satisfying end to this under appreciated trilogy OE Rolvaag is an American author who should be much wildly read, studied, and appreciated.
