SALON EXCLUSIVE: Julie Owen Moylan reads from That Green Eyed Girl

Prepare for some sparkling literature that you need to read this summer. That Green Eyed Girl by Julie Owen Moylan has everything we love in a book: a character-driven plot, a dual timeline, and a mystery that gradually unfolds making for a page-turning novel.

Ava is a young girl struggling to cope with an absent father and a mother suffering from a debilitating mental illness. She’s managing to keep it together, but only just. And then a parcel appears on her doorstep with a photo of a young woman with the word ‘LIAR’ scrawled across it. The riddle of the sender and its intended recipient become Ava’s obsession…

That Green Eyed Girl is published by Michael Joseph and available now. We recommend buying from your local indie or you can get it from our shop.
