Inhalt

Paperback edition of Rose Tremain's seventh novel. It is narrated by Lewis, an English teenager who is in Paris while his mother translates a book by bestselling novelist, Valentina Gavrilovich. Lewis becomes mesmerised by Valentina and the city, but then something terrible happens... "Quite simply magnificent. "The Way I Found Her" is a magical invention of page-turning suspense, of sadness, grief and passion, whose sure and delicate exposure of a sensibility flowering one hot Parisian summer teaches us the price of experience." Elizabeth Buchan, "The Times" Previous titles include "Restoration, Sacred Country" and "Evangelista's Fan".
