About A Change of Time:
A penetrating study of a woman who, in the wake of her domineering husband’s death, must embrace her newfound freedom and redefine herself.
Set in rural Denmark in the early 20th century, A Change of Time tells the story of a schoolteacher whose husband, the town doctor, has passed away. Her subsequent diary entries form an intimate portrait of a woman rebuilding her identity, and a small rural town whose path to modernity echoes her own path to joyful independence.
