Description

‘Infused with the spirit of Jane Eyre, Rebecca and The Woman in White’ – Independent’I was completely spellbound’ – Ruth Hogan’A delight…I devoured it’ – Jo Baker’Truly extraordinary’ – Dinah JeffriesSome say the river drowned her…Some say it brought her back to life____________________On a dark midwinter’s night in an ancient inn on the Thames, the regulars are entertaining themselves by telling stories when the door bursts open and in steps an injured stranger. In his arms is the drowned corpse of a child. Hours later, the dead girl stirs, takes a breath and returns to life.

Is it a miracle?Is it magic?And who does the little girl belong to? An exquisitely crafted multi-layered historical mystery brimming with folklore, suspense and romance, as well as with the urgent scientific curiosity of the Darwinian age, Once Upon a River is as richly atmospheric as Setterfield’s bestseller The Thirteenth Tale. ____________________”Diane’s masterful storytelling draws you in to a beguiling tale, full of twists and turns like the river at its heart, and just as rich and intriguing.” (M L Stedman, bestselling author of The Light Between Oceans)”Swift and entrancing, profound and beautiful. Give yourself a treat and read it!” (Madeline Miller, Orange Prize-winning author of The Song of Achilles and Circe)
