For years, rumours of the ‘Marsh Girl’ have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life – until the unthinkable happens.
I had heard so many great things about this book so thought I must give it a try. Personally I was not a fan I just felt as though I was plodding through a day to day life of a girl living in a marsh. The accent that Delia the author had chosen worked well for the characters, the story was very predictable but you can tell Delia has done a lot of research into the environment that Kya was living in. But it was just not for me.
