I very much enjoyed this slice of Auð's life, seen through her eyes and not always fully explained, but giving depth and layers to her story, together with the clear descriptions of the bustle of preparing for war, and her work as a seamstress.
I like the obviously deep bond between brother and sister. The mother was also a very interesting character.
And some things really seem to be universal: a man courting his his best friend's sister always seeming to be somewhat awkward; the wish for love and marriage, for a deep bond before setting out to war, so as to have something hopeful and joyful to sustain the warriors in grim times.
And, of course, the most important aspect: it was very, very romantic! I'm glad you gave us this chance to see the both of them alive and in love.
