Where did she come from? The story unfolds and there are two possibilities as to the identity of the little girl As the story unfolds we get to understand the motivations and lives of all the characters The inclusion of folklore and myth surrounding the river is interweaved throughout the story and I found it completely absorbing In fact I didn't want the story to end I loved every page every description and the ending was perfect too epub á ó Join or create book clubs
