Can’t Wait Wednesday, is hosted by Wishful Endings to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read.
This book has published but I am waiting for it to become available at my library. I was wary of this book because I loved one of her books and hated another book of hers. However, La La in the Library raved about it so I decided to give it a try. Thankfully, the hold list at my library is not very long. Check out La La’s review here.
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?
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.
