Helvig - Winni Østergaard This little gem of a book was written by my good friend Winni.

It's a historical novel based on many years of extensive genealogical research that was started by her American cousin. The book recounts of the life that might have been (based on historical facts found in church records and other surviving historical documents) for their common ancestor Helvig, a girl born outside of wedlock 1816 and follows her life until 1838.

If you can read Danish, and are in the position of getting hold of copy, I encourage you to read it, as it gives a good glimpse of what life and society might have been for girls/those born out of wedlock in the 1800's Denmark.
