Author Event - Diane Setterfield
15 Jan 2019
Diane Setterfield’s ‘The Thirteenth Tale’ was made into a BBC TV drama and repeated on BBC4 in October 2018. Her new novel ‘Once Upon a River’ is as richly atmospheric, an exquisitely crafted multi-layered mystery brimming with folklore, suspense and romance, as well as with the urgent scientific curiosity of the Darwinian age. 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 carrying 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, magic or can it be explained by science?
