Review: Once Upon a River

Once Upon a RiverOnce Upon a River by Bonnie Jo Campbell

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Once I realized that the title of this book is meant to give you a clue as to what type of story you're about to read, most of my criticisms evaporated. Margo's journey is a fairy tale, where only those that know her best are capable of saying no to her, and she always manages to meet people that will help her on her journey at just about the right time. If you're open to that story telling style, this is a wonderful bit of escapism reading about a place and a life that many would love to live, if only they had Margo's skills and tools (and incredible good luck with strangers).
