Harper Lee’s upcoming Go Set a Watchman doesn’t hit shelves until July, but publisher Harper Collins gave fans a sneak peak of the cover Wednesday to tide them over until summer.

The cover is similar to To Kill a Mockingbird‘s, with an illustrated tree placed over a solid background. While To Kill a Mockingbird‘s tree was full of leaves, though, this one is considerably barer—and hangs over a railroad track.

Go Set a Watchman is a continuation of 1960’s To Kill a Mockingbird, Lee’s only published book so far. It will focus on Scout’s life about two decades after To Kill a Mockingbird ended and how she “is forced to grapple with issues both personal and political as she tries to understand her father’s attitude toward society, and her own feelings about the place where she was born and spent her childhood,” according to the initial book announcement. It’s set to come out July 14.
