So get your blankets and sweaters ready and make sure you add these books to your list this season!


Once Upon a River
by Diane Setterfield

Setterfield’s masterful mystery tells of a young girl who appears to have come back from the dead on the night of the winter solstice. While the town scrambles to identify her, the mute girl poses a mystery that no one seems ready to solve and raises other questions about people in town and their way of life. This gothic historical fiction is remarkably perceptive and straddles the line between fantasy and reality in a way that makes it even more authentic.

The Falconer
