I can see how he would have, because not only did he have that story, but he had to very quickly dispel the secrecy surrounding River. I mean, when they left off in the series River was just a traumatised young girl, with strong hints of unusual powers. And Shepherd Book had no backstory at that point, which would have been revealed!
