When TV presenter Philippa Forrester first met Charlie, a wildlife cameraman, she thought he was a show-off - and he thought she was arrogant. The second time, despite being hungry, thirsty and trapped in torrential rain aboard the world's most uncomfortable boat, they fell in love. This is the story of their move out of London, deep into the heart of the English countryside. When they impulsively buy an old mill-worker's cottage, they are entranced by its river, teeming with kingfishers, mink and water fowl. But they are overjoyed when they spot an animal long thought to have abandoned the area: an otter, swimming happily past their house. Inspired, they decide to make a film about the otters on their doorstep ...at the same time as having a baby, setting up house, and pursuing their careers. Unsurprisingly, things turn out to be easier said than done. Written with endless charm and real affection, featuring a cast of memorable characters, "The River" is packed with hilarious stories spanning floods, chicken keeping and wildlife watching. The result is sheer delight.
