Show Notes

Heather Ostman is the author of the new novel, The Second Chance Home for Girls. Told through three interwoven narrative voices, it’s a story of friendship and freedom, loss and grief, set in a halfway house for troubled teenage girls. She is also the author of the forthcoming Rhetorical Lives, a history of women activists of the 20th and early 21st centuries.

“An atmospheric yet entertaining read with an enigmatic, charismatic hero that will keep readers riveted. This beguiling, slyly subversive tale puts a spiritual mystery at the heart of gritty truths.” - Kirkus Reviews Best Books of 2020
