This is an auction for THE WAY I FOUND HER by Rose Tremain.

"There is magic in Rose Tremain's evocation of a summer in Paris....Her touch is light, subtle, and complex -- just like the city at the centre of her tale."
- Washington Times

"This is a literary puzzle where every sentence counts as mystery, as art. The plotting here is as elegant as a recurring pattern in an excellent piece of silk. I can't think of a better novel to read this summer."
- Washington Post

"The Way I Found Her is at once a mystery story, a psychological exploration and a novel of ideas. That it should succeed and provoke on these various levels pays high tribute to Tremain's intellect; that it should do so while remaining as apparently weightless and as thoroughly engaging as any precocious adolescent's account of his summer holidays is a testament to Rose Tremain's superlative storytelling gifts."
- New York Times

"Tremain's wonderfully bitter-sweet novel is the story of a boy on the brink of manhood, puzzling over life and love as Paris in summer sizzles and burns. Lewis Little has come to Paris with Alice, his dazzlingly beautiful mother, to improve his French while she translates novelist Valentina Gavrilovitch's latest medieval romance into English. Lewis has an inkling that this summer is the turning point of his life. And change it does, as he falls in love with the glistening, fortyish Valentina. And then Valentina disappears. Tremain keeps the reader hooked until the startling ending. This book has the marks of a coming-of-age classic."
