From the Publisher
Annotation A child uprooted among fears of a Nazi assault on London during the Second World War finds herself unwittingly enmeshed in the romantic exploits of her new caretakers. As the English await the worst from Hitler's bombers, THE VERY THOUGHT OF YOU delivers young Anna Sands disturbing secrets between the married aristocrats Thomas and Elizabeth Ashton. With Master Ashton plagued by polio and confined to a wheelchair, Elizabeth lives a free live filled with love affairs, which gives the little girl a chance for a closer discovery of this surrogate father.
