By the author of Black Narcissus.

‘Her craftsmanship is always sure; her understanding of character is compassionate and profound; her prose is pure, delicate, and gently witty’ New York Times

Harriet is caught between two worlds: her older sister is no longer a playmate, her brother is still a little boy. And the comforting rhythm of her Indian childhood – the sounds of the jute factory, the colourful festivals that accompany each season and the eternal ebb and flow of the river on its journey to the Bay of Bengal – is about to be shattered by a tragic event. Intense, vivid, and with a dark undertow, The River is a poignant portrait of the loss of a young girl’s innocence.
