Praise for The River King

“Graceful, beguiling, and quirky…Reading her book is like having a dream that haunts even after we awaken.”—The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

“Rewarding…a novel not to be missed.”—St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“Set in and around an exclusive private school in fictional Haddan, Mass., bestselling author Hoffman’s latest novel flows as swiftly and limpidly as the Haddan River, the town’s mystical waterway…As ever, Hoffman mixes myth, magic and reality, addressing issues of town and gown, enchanting her readers with a many-layered morality tale and proving herself once again an inventive author with a distinctive touch.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Suspenseful and engrossing.”—Denver Rocky Mountain News

“It can be hard to find an example of good old-fashioned storytelling these days, but storytelling, refreshingly, is Alice Hoffman’s strength…The River King is full of wonderfully and satisfyingly odd twists and turns.”—The New York Times Book Review
