The Other Half of Augusta Hope

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.

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 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.

Praised by Red magazine as a ‘beautifully written debut novel with unforgettable characters and an irresistible message of redemption and belonging’, by author of Things in Jars, Jess Kidd, as ‘heartening and hopeful’ and by Anstey Harris, author of The Truths and Triumphs of Grace Atherton, as an ‘extraordinary masterpiece’, Glen’s debut novel is an endearing tale about self-discovery.
