about this item

In this breathtaking literary novel, an innocent maid discovers the power of obsession when she is caught between two lovers in an illicit affair.

"...this well-crafted novel which explores the nature of obsessive love and the possible inspiration for The Scream."— Publishers Weekly

Johanne Lien has grown up living a simple life with her family in Åsgårdstrand, Norway. Now that she's working as a maid for an admiral's family, Johanne thinks her carefree summers are over. She doesn't yet know that an infamous artist will lead her down a path of scorching chaos.

The admiral's daughter has become obsessed with the painter, a man years older with a dark reputation. When a forbidden affair beings, and Johanne is asked to hide more than just secrets, she must decide whether to take the risk...

Seen through the eyes of a young maid who finds herself drawn ever deeper into the intense relationship between her mistress and the painter, The Girl Between explores how one of the most famous paintings of all time may have been inspired by an intoxicating love affair.

"With careful, loving attention, Strømme transforms Munch's sketches and paintings into messages of longing."— Booklist
