Once Upon a River

Diane Setterfield

  • Signed by the author

“A story, no matter how cleverly it is structured, lives or dies on the vividness of its characters. Setterfield, a true storyteller, makes us care about all her players in this beguiling novel.” – The Times

“Exploring themes of storytelling, parenthood, science and society on the cusp of change, this is a richly evocative novel.” – Observer 

“Once Upon a River is magical, in every which way…it’s the power of her storytelling that allows readers to suspend disbelief, and draws them through each tangled, dazzling chapter…This riverine novel has the mood and feel of a ghost story told late into the night, and will win over readers who enjoy a touch of age-old enchantment.” – Financial Times
