Judith Lindbergh

Lindbergh's latest book The Thrall's Tale required more than 10 years to write and research. When the book was ready to market, she had both an agent and a sale in less than a month! This historical novel takes place in the first Viking settlement in Greenland in 985 A.D. Lindbergh spent years of research for the book, including a voyage of her own on an ice-class research vessel from Iceland to Greenland, retracing the path of Erik the Red and the first Norse settlers. Also an accomplished photographer, Ms. Lindbergh's images of Greenland and Iceland have been exhibited at venues including The Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine and The Edward Hopper House.

I have read the book and it is intriguing. The language is poetic and her precise use of descriptive words brings you into the era of the tale. Loved the book.
