A year after the hardback hit the shelves, Jane Healey‘s intoxicating novel of a mother and daughter set over two sweltering, hot summers, launches in paperback in the US. Courtesy of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, the paperback publication of The Ophelia Girls is perfectly timed for the sticky, summer weather we’re all experiencing.

Hailed as a ‘challenging and memorable read that combines beautiful writing and creeping unease’ by Booklist, The Ophelia Girls is the second novel by the acclaimed author of The Animals at Lockwood Manor, which won the Historical Writers’ Association Debut Crown Award in 2020.

Happy Paperback Publication Day, Jane!
