Anna, Where Are You? book. Hardcover, Large Print, 336 pages. Published August 1st 2009 by Isis (first published 1951). Patricia Wentworth’s writing is always characterized by fascinating psychological motivations and insights. In this novel, there are plenty of candidates for psychological observance. As always, the pacing is perfect and the story itself adds urgency to curiosity.

Wentworth, Patricia ust had with Frank Abbott. It had not clarified anything, it had not led them anywhere, but it had certainly added to the apprehension with which the whole situation inspired her. She had the unpleasant sensation of trying to find her way in a fog. No sooner did a clue present itself than it petered out, any attempt to follow it resulting in confusion.

This book is partly about the nature of love and trust, and what happens when you either try to live without these things or give in to the sirens' call.

Released LIBRARY copy with minimal library markings inside and a few library stickers on the outside. This book is partly about the nature of love and trust, and what happens when you either try to live without these things or give in to the sirens' call. From the clever opening to the not fully resolved ending, this book keeps you guessing about the central character's fate and future emotional state, while also being action-packed.

As for Mrs. Craddock, she was, as Frank Abbott had said, quite literally wrapped in the domestic overall, a garment of faded print which hung limply on her small, thin frame. She was very thin and a good deal bent. Her little pinched face was deeply lined.

So when, after three years of regular correspondence, Anna's letters suddenly stop, she becomes concerned. And even more so when it transpires that her friend has disappeared without trace, in extremely odd circumstances. Format Audio cassette 6 pages. Publication date 01 Sep 2009. Publisher ISIS Publishing.

Anna, Where Are You? 338 printed pages. For a year she has moved from one job as a nanny to another, unable to settle or make friends. After just a month with her last family, she walks down the road, steps onto a bus, and is never seen again. No one notices she has gone. Almost no one. There is one woman who cares about Anna: a long-ago school pal named Thomasina, with whom she would trade a weekly letter

Oh, he respects you all right. But he gets his back up wondering just how the trick is done. The quickness of the hand deceives the eye, and the Chief doesn’t like having his eye deceived

Oh, he respects you all right. The quickness of the hand deceives the eye, and the Chief doesn’t like having his eye deceived. When you get there in a flash of lightning he begins to suspect the unlawful arts. She smiled indulgently

Anna, Where Are You? Patricia Wentworth. At half past two on a dark September afternoon Anna Ball came down the steps of No. 5 Lenister Street with a suit-case in her hand.

Thomasina Elliott never expected to keep in touch with lonely orphan Anna Ball after they left school. However when Anna wrote to her, she felt obliged to reply. The correspondence between them was constant for years until Thomasina found herself waiting for a letter that never came.Thomasina has no particular reason to believe that anything has happened to her old friend, but when she makes some enquiries she discovers Anna has disappeared without a trace. Deeply concerned, Thomasina turns to her fiance, who asks Miss Silver to investigate.

Comments:

Ohatollia
Miss Silver has the perfect cover for her sleuthing in this book. She was for many years a governess, and she takes on the familiar role in order to hunt for a young woman who has vanished. Anna's friend Thomasina Elliott can't let Anna's disappearance go without an investigation, even though no one but Thomasina misses the disagreeable young woman. Miss Silver is hired to infiltrate the last home where Anna worked.

The home is a large residence partly bombed out in the war and now partly boarded up. Whole sections of the house are considered unsafe and locked up. The household includes a pompous husband writing a book on planetary influences, a sickly wife, and three children who run wild. Miss Silver, being very good with children, is a godsend to the family, besides being an inspired and efficient snoop.

The household is part of a colony of "seekers" -- colorful characters with bohemian pursuits. The plot encompasses devious bank robberies, cold-blooded killings, and a chilling ghost story, as well as the pursuit of the missing Anna. And of course there's a love interest. Patricia Wentworth is adept at mixing crime and romance.

This mystery (first published in 1951) is atmospheric and cleverly plotted. Seeing Miss Silver in her old role as governess is especially fun.

Ordered for my sister, said it was very good

I am in the process of reading or re-reading all of the Patricia Wentworth books.
Drelajurus
Patricia Wentworth's books rival Agatha Christie's books. Her style is her own and has well developed characters. I read all of Christies books and even some twice. Then a friend gave me a Patricia Wentworth book and was so excited to have a whole set of mysteries to enjoy.
Bearus
Not vintage Miss Silver. The tie-ins and plot lines very tenuous and unreal. Much better to start with Grey Mask or the Wicked Uncle and go on from there. Glad to have read it though.
Kabei
Wonderful tale of another time and place. Charming and relaxing.
Wilalmaine
Ms. Wentworth never disappoints the reader.
She creates characters you will love and characters you will not. There is a deal of history in her stories.
This was another great story by Patricia Wentworth I have a collection of her books and would love to have them all on kindle
