about

On a summer visit to Germany, George, a young medical student at Cambridge, meets Anna von Kleist, whose intellectual force, beauty, and self-assurance smite him full in the heart. It is 1936.

Europe is on the cusp of war when the three find themselves in a painful love triangle that plays between England and Germany. Facing decisions that will forever alter the course of their lives, they must choose and live with the consequences of their choices.

In Therefore Choose, his intimately rendered characters draw us irrevocably into their quest for meaning, hope, and understanding in a world diving headlong into chaos."A thoroughly thought-provoking read. Oatley is deft with dialogue — big ideas are channelled seamlessly through the minds of his characters. George, Werner, and Anna's every choice — whether to act, react, or withhold action — is imbued with power." — Steven Galloway, author of The Cellist of Sarajevo
