I loved this book. It not only attests to the excellent story telling of the author, but it held me in awe of it’s mastery of detail and readability. I felt that the story was enthralling, but the attention to detail and story follow up, along with the touch of magical realism, was wonderful. Setterfield’s style and technique is above most.
Wonderful folklore about the Thames River. Mostly set in the Swan Inn, where tales are told. Until that frightful night that an unknown man staggers in with a lifeless girl in his arms.
Splendid, charming story, told in an enchanting way, by an excellent story teller.
