Waterstones Says

The Keeper of Lost Things meets Elizabeth is Missing in this profoundly moving and humane story of an old man who insists that his wife vanished during the war despite there being no evidence that she ever existed.

A BBC2 Between the Covers Book Club pick

In Second World War Bath, young, naive wireless engineer Will meets Austrian refugee Elsa Klein: she is sophisticated, witty and worldly, and at last his life seems to make sense . . . until, soon after, the newly married couple's home is bombed, and Will awakes from the wreckage to find himself alone.

No one has heard of Elsa Klein. They say he was never married.

Seventy years later, social worker Laura is battling her way out of depression and off medication. Her new case is a strange, isolated old man whose house hasn't changed since the war. A man who insists his wife vanished many, many years before. Everyone thinks he's suffering dementia. But Laura begins to suspect otherwise ...

From Keith Stuart, author of  A Boy Made of Blocks, comes a stunning, emotional novel about an impossible mystery and a true love that refuses to die.
