Read full description of the books:
Vida Winter passou quase seis décadas a iludir jornalistas e admiradores acerca das suas origens, mantendo oculto o seu passado enigmático, tão enigmático como a sua primeira obra, intitulada Treze Contos de Mudança e Desespero, e que continha apenas doze. Porém, tudo isto pode estar prestes a mudar quando Margaret Lea, biógrafa amadora, recebe uma carta da famosa escritora convidando-a a redigir a sua biografia. Pela primeira vez, Vida Winter vai contar a verdade, a verdade acerca de uma família atormentada por segredos e cicatrizes. Mas poderá Margaret confiar totalmente nela? E terá sido ela eleita depositária das confidências por um motivo inocente? Um romance assombroso, que se tornou um bestseller imediato e que será publicado em mais de trinta línguas.

Read information about the author“…a mistress of the craft of storytelling.”
Diane Setterfield is a British author. Her bestselling novel, The Thirteenth Tale (2006) was published in 38 countries worldwide and has sold more than three million copies. It was number one in the New York Times hardback fiction list for three weeks and is enjoyed as much for being ‘a love letter to reading’ as for its mystery and style. Her second novel, Bellman & Black (2013 is a genre-defying tale of rooks and Victorian retail. January 2019 sees the publication of her new title, Once Upon a River, which has been called 'bewitching' and 'enchanting'.
Born in Englefield, Berkshire in 1964, Diane spent most of her childhood in the nearby village of Theale. After schooldays at Theale Green, Diane studied French Literature at the University of Bristol. Her PhD was on autobiographical structures in André Gide’s early fiction. She taught English at the Institut Universitaire de Technologie and the Ecole nationale supérieure de Chimie, both in Mulhouse, France, and later lectured in French at the University of Central Lancashire in the UK. She left academia in the late 1990s to pursue writing.
The Thirteenth Tale was acquired by Heyday Films and adapted for television by the award-winning playwright and scriptwriter, Christopher Hampton. Starring Vanessa Redgrave and Olivia Colman, it was filmed in 2013 in North Yorkshire for BBC2. The TV rights to Once Upon a River have even sold to Kudos (Broadchurch, Spooks, Grantchester).
Diane Setterfield has been published in over forty countries.
Diane lives in Oxford, in the UK. When not writing she reads widely, and when not actually reading she is usually talking or thinking about reading. She is, she says, ‘a reader first, a writer second.’
