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.

Industry Reviews

"A scary, funny and ultimately very affecting novel... Tremain lets us glimpse the adult-in-waiting; reminds us that life - tinged with joy, sex, pain - takes its whole shape from such moments" -- Julie Myerson * Mail on Sunday * "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. Do not miss it" -- Elizabeth Buchan * The Times * "Quite simply magnificent" * The Times *
