Once Upon a River: A Novel by Diane Setterfield | Conversation Starters
One dark night during a 19th-century winter, people who lived near the Thames river gathered in an old inn to tell stories to while away the slow hours. The door suddenly opens to reveal an injured man struggling to carry a lifeless child's body in his arms. The small girl is apparently dead but a few hours afterward, she stirs back to life. The townspeople think it's magic or a miracle. The child, being mute, cannot reveal anything about herself. Three different families believe that the child is theirs but they also have secrets that have to be unraveled before the girl's identity is truly known.
Once Upon A River is the latest work by the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Thirteenth Tale, Diane Setterfield.
