The narrator of The Way I Found Her is a teenaged English boy, Lewis. Clever, precocious and full of curiosity, he spends the hot summer of 1994 exploring Paris with a red setter dog, while his mother translates the latest medieval romance by luscious bestselling novelist, Valentina Gavrilovich. Living in Valentina's apartment is magical and Valentina herself gradually casts an emotional spell over Lewis. But this enchanted world is suddenly lost....and Lewis is driven on a terrifying quest. The workings of Lewis's mind, his humour, his quirky opinions, his choice of words and vision of the world, will give readers of this novel an experience which is utterly out of the ordinary.

Synopsis:

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".
