Description

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Once Upon a River, written by Diane Setterfield and read by Juliet Stevenson. 

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 on an injured stranger. In his arms is the drowned corpse of a little child. 

Hours later the dead girl stirs, takes a breath and returns to life.  

Is it a miracle?  

Is it magic?  

Or can it be explained by science?   

An exquisitely crafted multilayered 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 best seller The Thirteenth Tale.

Enchanting, watery story.

Although I did get a little muddled by how many children drowned or did not,( my fault no doubt),I did become engrossed in all the tales of families and life on a river. Being familiar with the Collodion photographic technique, I was also appreciative of how the author integrated this important development in the history of image capture. The actor’s voice characterizations were so apt and skilled. No wonder Ms Stevenson has been much “used” on stage, screens and audio.

thoroughly enjoyed.

although i really enjoyed this book, it took me 3 hours to get 'in' to it and with all the names it become a but confusing at times. The book as a whole is wonderfully written and the accents were really enjoyable.

definitely one of the best books I ever read!

I wasn't expecting this to be one of the greatest books I ever read, but there it is! I couldn't stop reading, was thinking about it the whole time, about the characters, their stories, story telling per se, the mystery of the child's appearance and everything else. It is really amazing and I would totally re-read it!
