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.
Is it a miracle?
Is it magic?
Or can it be explained by science?
Replete 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.
