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


`I found it both a mesmerizingly 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 that you're ever likely to read' Deborah Orr
