Astri's Family Farm

This is property owned by Astri's uncle, as the oldest son of the family. The property provides for the Aunt and Uncle's family. As a child, Astri lives on the property with her mother, father, and sisters. When her mother dies and her father goes to America, Astri moves into the house with her Aunt. The farm is typical of the time and place. There is a main house and several outbuildings, all with specific purposes.

Norway

This is the country where the first sections of the story take place. The country is real and there are some specific places described. Those descriptions include brooks, wooded areas, small villages, and farms. Astri talks about the gloomy weather and says America is sunny every day that Norway is cloudy, meaning America is sunny most of the time. The setting is believable considering the time frame.
