Product Description

Product Description

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent read 29 Jun 2014

Not the type of book I would usually read but I found it hard to put down once started and read it in 3 days. Very readable and interesting even if wildlife on rivers isn't something that usually interests you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nature made real 20 Oct 2013

There are very few books which, with the programmes they accompany, really bring a story of nature together in a way which will encourage people to go out &watch animals & birds for themselves

5.0 out of 5 stars Love the Love Story 12 Jun 2013

I love everything about "Halcyon River Diaries" (the TV series & book), including this book which serves to introduce you to Philippa, Charlie, their family and their river, in the period before the TV series was created. Thank goodness there are still people out there creating beautiful, quality, family-oriented material like this. Highly recommended.
