Shortlisted for the UK''s prestigious Orange Prize, this is a haunting coming-of-age novel with a love story at its heart. Without question one of the best debuts I''ve read in recent years.--John Boyne, author of "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas."
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.


"[T]his gracefully written novel takes unexpected turns through betrayal, loss, love and loss of innocence that will shock your emotions time and again, yet still retain a gentle sense of quiet." (starred review) - Leah Michele Hansen 07/01/2011
