Once Upon a River (Setterfield) - Book Reviews

Book Reviews
Utterly enthralling.
New York Journal of Books


(Starred Review) Setterfield braids miracle and mystery in this marvelous tale.… By combining …a hint of Austen’s domestic stories, a tinge of Tolkien’s more folkloric elements, and a dash of mystery from Christie—Setterfield has created a tale not to be missed.
Publishers Weekly


(Starred Review) The heart of the story are the relationships that twist and turn, as if they also follow the river. Recommended to readers who enjoy popular or historical fiction with gothic twistse. —Jennifer Funk, McKendree Univ. Lib., Lebanon, IL
Library Journal


Setterfield fills this richly layered plot with a fascinating cast of memorable characters who weave in and out of each other's lives
Booklist


(Starred Review) Setterfield masterfully assembles an ensemble of wounded, vulnerable characters.… [The book] celebrates the timeless secrets of life, death, and imagination—and the enduring power of words. Fans, rejoice!
