Publisher's Summary

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 begins, 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.

Enjoyed the story

Enjoyed the story but while I love this narrator in other audio books I've listened to, I don't think her style suited this particular story, set in Norway. I think her cockney accent was too overdone and spoiled a lot of the characters. The story is a good one though.
