I’m thrilled to be able to show you the amazing US cover of Unsettled Ground for the first time. It was designed by Diane Chonette, the Art Director at my US publisher, Tin House, using art work by Valerie Hegarty. What do you think? Drop me a line and let me know.
The cover was revealed today on Entertainment Weekly’s website, and they have also published a sneak preview of chapter one. Read it here.
Unsettled Ground will be published in the US on 18th May 2021.
If you missed what the UK cover looks like, you can see it here.

You’ll ask, beguiled: What’s really going on here?”
