From the earliest age Augusta Hope has always felt like an outsider in her family. Bright, argumentative, precocious and forthright she is the exact opposite of her perfect twin sister Julia, whom she adores. Words and language are her salvation and she uses them with cutting accuracy, bemusing the adults around her. While looking through an atlas, Augusta becomes convinced that Barundi is the most beautiful sounding country in the whole world and that it is where she really belongs. Meanwhile, in Burundi, Parfait is doing anything he can to get out of the country and save his family from complete destruction. A desperate trek to safety will bring him almost to breaking point.

Seemingly world’s apart, tragedy will prove that we are all more alike than we think we are. The Other Half of Augusta Hope is a story of belonging, family, what makes a home and the secrets that tear us apart. If you loved Eleanor Oliphant, you will love Augusta Hope.
