✏Once Upon a River Book Summary : From the instant #1 New York Times bestselling author of the “eerie and fascinating” (USA TODAY) The Thirteenth Tale comes a “swift and entrancing, profound and beautiful” (Madeline Miller, internationally bestselling author of Circe) novel about how we explain the world to ourselves, ourselves to others, and the meaning of our lives in a universe that remains impenetrably mysterious. On a dark midwinter’s night in an ancient inn on the river Thames, an extraordinary event takes place. The regulars are telling stories to while away the dark hours, when the door bursts open on a grievously wounded stranger. In his arms is the lifeless body of a small child. Hours later, the girl stirs, takes a breath and returns to life. Is it a miracle? Is it magic? Or can science provide an explanation? These questions have many answers, some of them quite dark indeed. Those who dwell on the river bank apply all their ingenuity to solving the puzzle of the girl who died and lived again, yet as the days pass the mystery only deepens. The child herself is mute and unable to answer the essential questions: Who is she? Where did she come from? And to whom does she belong? But answers proliferate nonetheless. Three families are keen to claim her. A wealthy young mother knows the girl is her kidnapped daughter, missing for two years. A farming family reeling from the discovery of their son’s secret liaison stand ready to welcome their granddaughter. The parson’s housekeeper, humble and isolated, sees in the child the image of her younger sister. But the return of a lost child is not without complications and no matter how heartbreaking the past losses, no matter how precious the child herself, this girl cannot be everyone’s. Each family has mysteries of its own, and many secrets must be revealed before the girl’s identity can be known. Once Upon a River is a glorious tapestry of a book that combines folklore and science, magic and myth. Suspenseful, romantic, and richly atmospheric, this is “a beguiling tale, full of twists and turns like the river at its heart, and just as rich and intriguing” (M.L. Stedman, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Light Between Oceans).

✏Once Upon the River Love Book Summary : In the immense virgin pine forests of Siberia, where the snows of winter are vast and endless, sits the little village of Svetlaya. Once, the village had been larger, more prosperous, but time and the pendulum of history had reduced it by the 1970s to no more than a cluster of izbas. But for three young men—the handsome young Alyosha, the crippled Utkin, and the older, dashing Samurai—little is needed to construct their own special universe. Despite the harshness of the environment and their meager resources, the three adolescents form a tight band of friendship and dream of another life, a world of passion and love. And when they learn one day that a Western film is being shown in the closest real city, they trek for hours on snowshoes to see it. Through that film, the boys’ lives are changed forever. Written from the perspective of twenty years after these youthful events, Once Upon the River Love follows the destinies of these three young idealists up to the present day, to the boardwalks of Brighton Beach and the jungles of Central America. With the same mastery of plot and prose that marked the author’s Dreams of My Russian Summers, this novel demonstrates Makine’s remarkable ability to recreate the past with such precision and beauty that the present becomes all the more poignant.

✏Once Upon the River Platte Book Summary : This is a full-length novel about an environmental crisis in the Platte River Valley of eastern Nebraska. In addition to scorching temperatures, prairie fires, and water shortages, there is yet another problem: "heat crazy" wild animals are attacking humans in many parts of the Platte River Valley. Within only a few weeks, the death toll begins to soar. Zephaniah Pike, a federal agent, is sent to Nebraska to investigate. He and his team of experts soon find themselves in a bizarre and ever-worsening predicament, one that pits armed locals against angry environmentalists. Amidst the turmoil, Agent Pike must find some answers---and a way to avoid mob violence and bloodshed. The members of Agent Pike's "crisis team" include Jacob Vogel, a Nebraska-based federal agent; Dr. Susan Hotaru, a wildlife biologist, and Old Man Elk, a Pawnee Indian artist and activist who is intimately familiar with Nebraska wildlife. The four members of the team struggle to solve the crisis and to work together as a truly united team. Observing them all the while is Ahwa, a female coyote, who does not trust the ways of the intrusive "Two-Leggeds." One early reviewer has described "Once Upon the River Platte" as "a real gem. It shines and sparkles in every way."
