Reviews

'A joy...the humour and pathos in their stories lends real heart and soul' OBSERVER

'A moving tale... sure to make you cry... Parfait [is] a convincingly serious, sweet, clever and funny person who ends up carrying the story... an epic hero ... It's going to be all over every book club in Britain before you can say Burundi' The Times

'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

'Joanna Glen weaves a uniquely heartening and hopeful story. A story about pain, the solace of words and our search to belong, to a place, to a person. Welcome to the world of the wonderful Augusta Hope' Jess Kidd, author Himself and Things in Jars

'Without a doubt one of the best books I have ever read - an extraordinary masterpiece' Anstey Harris, author of The Truths and Triumphs of Grace Atherton

'Absolutely brilliant - quirky, original, funny, moving and wonderfully written. Basically, it's everything I love in a novel; Gavin Extence, author of The Universe Versus Alex Woods

'The most gutsy, endearing and entertaining meditation on the meaning of human existence that you're ever likely to read' Deborah Orr
