Further Information

On the dust jacket of the book the author writes: „My mother died November 23rd, 1965, in Reykjavík, 45 years old, after many years of hard diseases. Today therefore, it is a little more than 50 years since she passed away, and besides, she would have been 95 years of age in 2015, born February 27th 1920. With this little book I want to introduce her for those of her descendants that never got the opportunity to know her, and to others. Those who knew her may also enjoy to recall their acquaintance with her. I have chosen to let the compilation mainly deal with the great tragedies my parents experienced, the loss of their three first children in a tragic way, and later the loss of their youngest child. Noone can imagine the deep sorrow such incidents cause. They made harsh footprints in mom´s and dad´s souls and also in the minds of us, their decendants."

The book is devided into three main parts. The first part is called "A young girl from the Flói area" and deals with Guðrún´s ancestry, the farm Hurðarbak in the Flói area and her youth and adult life before the great blows. The second part of the book is called "The horrible tragedies" and tells about the loss of her three young children, or indeed four, since they a few later had to give away their youngest child, due to Guðrún´s bad diseases. The third part of the book has the title "The Consequences" and deals with her physical and mental diseases, her Christian and spiritual beliefs and her death. In the books postscript we have the authors epilogue, a list of all Guðrún´s descendants and a list of references.

The book is in Icelandic.
