The River : A Love Story, A New Life in the Country, and One Idyllic Year Filming Otters
When Philippa Forrester and her husband wildlife photographer Charlie Hamilton Jones decide to get out of the rat race and set up home in an old mill on a river in the heart of Gloucestershire, they get considerably more than they bargained for. Populated by otters, kingfishers and water fowl, the river is teeming with life and the young couple soon fall in love with it. But it is the otters that really capture the couple's imagination and they soon become absorbed in researching and protecting this timid and endangered species. THE RIVER is the engaging, utterly entertaining and personal story of their attempts to get a commission for and make a film about the families of otters, whilst at the same time, as having a baby, moving house and pursuing their careers. Written with humour and genuine affection for wildlife, THE RIVER is a gentle and charming read that won't fail to entertain.
