    Description

    Shortlisted for the Authors’ Club Best First Novel Award.

    Augusta Hope has never felt like she fits in. At six, she’s memorising the dictionary. At seven, she’s correcting her teachers. At eight, she spins the globe and picks her favourite country on the sound of its name: Burundi. And now that she's an adult, Augusta has no interest in the goings-on of the small town where she lives with her parents and her beloved twin sister, Julia. 

    When an unspeakable tragedy upends everything in Augusta's life, she's propelled headfirst into the unknown. She's determined to find where she belongs – but what if her true home and heart are half a world away?

    Commentaires

    "I found it both a mesmerisingly beautiful portrait of a young woman discovering what home means to her, and a poignant depiction of how our actions can touch other people's lives in ways we could never have anticipated. Augusta and Parfait are wonderful characters; I was willing them on to find the happiness and peace they both deserved." (Sarah Haywood, author of The Cactus)

    "The most gutsy, endearing and entertaining meditation on the meaning of human existence...." (Deborah Orr) 

    "Keep the tissues close." (Good Housekeeping)

    The uncanny nature of life

    The story of Augusta and Parfait is woven together skilfully and poetically. It held my attention all the way, and I was sorry when it came to an end. That feeling you get when it's hard to know how to follow up a book that's taken you into another world.

    Endless

    Soooooo long - a good story amongst all the endless detail. I finished it but found myself irritated by the English story . The Burundian story was heartbreaking but not enough to keep the book going
