The Strawberry Girl

By Lisa Strømme

Published Apr 2016

Summer 1893, and the Norwegian fishing village of Asgardstrand is preparing for the arrival of well-to-do guests and bohemian artists from the city. Local girl Johanne Lien dutifully gathers berries for tourists and poses barefoot for painters as ‘The Strawberry Girl’.

When Johanne becomes a maid for the wealthy Ihlen family, their wayward daughter Tullik recruits her as a go-between in her pursuit of the controversial painter Edvard Munch. Before long, Johanne is drawn into the raw emotion of Munch’s art and his secret liaison with Tullik. But when she is asked to hide more than just secrets, Johanne must decide whether to take the risk…

Lisa Stromme brings alive the tumultuous love affair that inspired The Scream, one of the most famous paintings of all time, in a vivid and bewitching story of innocence, creativity and desire.
