On a dark midwinter’s night in an ancient inn on the river Thames, an extraordinary event takes place.

The regulars are telling stories to while away the dark hours, when the door bursts open on a grievously

wounded stranger. In his arms is the lifeless body of a small child. Hours later, the girl stirs, takes a breath

and returns to life. Is it a miracle? Is it magic? Or can science provide an explanation?  Those who dwell

on the river bank apply all their ingenuity to solving the puzzle of the girl who died and lived again, yet as

the days pass the mystery only deepens. The child herself is mute and unable to answer the essential questions:

Who is she? Where did she come from? And to whom does she belong.
