'You can't stop days or rivers . . . '
Harriet is between two worlds. Her older sister is no longer a playmate, her brother is still a child. And the comforting rhythm of her Indian childhood - the noise from the jute works, the colourful festivals that accompany each season and the eternal ebb and flow of the river on its journey to the Bay of Benghal - is about to be shattered by a tragic event. The River is Rumer Godden's beautiful tribute to India and to childhood.

The collection has been expertly put together to remind the reader that while the way we describe things has changed, the feelings behind them certainly haven't. Bold, beautiful ... everyone's appetites will be satisfied. (Elle magazine)
Not only Rumer Godden's best book but a small masterpiece, a near perfect account of how childhood has to come to an end and the serpent must enter the garden. (Anne Chisholm Spectator)
The classic tale of an Indian childhood, made available in a beautiful hardback edition as part of the VMC set for adult and young adult readers.
