Looking For Jane, the incredible novel by debut author Heather Marshall has been nothing short of a triumph! Becoming an instant bestseller in Heather’s home country of Canada, was an exciting, life-changing moment, and the dream has continued as it spends its third week as Toronto Star‘s #1 bestselling Canadian fiction title.
The love and support that has poured in for this title has included being a CostCo staff pick for March, an Indigo staff fiction Pick of the Month, and landing on Kobo’s Best Audiobooks of the Month list. It also reached #1 on the bestseller lists of The Globe and Mail.
Take a look at this fabulous interview where Heather discusses the real life inspiration behind the novel on TVO’s The Agenda.
‘An emotional but compelling story, inspired by real events, which takes an eye-opening look at abortion, its costs and a not-so-distant chapter of Canadian history.‘
‘A sensitive fictional take on these real-life events illuminates the power of women, and of motherhood’
“Looking for Jane is a beautifully written meditation on the lengths mothers will go to for their children as well as an eye-opening history of women. It is an ode to the doctors, nurses, and volunteers who fought for the rights of future generations to have a say over their bodies. This gracefully entwined story of three generations of women, societal mores, and mothers and daughters stole my heart.”
Janet Skeslien Charles, New York Times bestselling author of The Paris Library
“Heather Marshall shines a spotlight on the unsettling truths and heartbreaking realities faced by women of every generation. Looking for Jane is a compelling, courageous must-read about motherhood and choice.”
Genevieve Graham, USA Today and #1 bestselling author of The Forgotten Home Child
