-------------------------------------------------


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.

Loved this!

I was hooked from the first chapter and my heart broke for the little girl where the story started, and although I had guessed the ending I thought that the way the author revealed this was so good. Would highly recommend.

Misery lit meets Mills and Boon

Badly written and full of cliches. Gave up about halfway, it was too awful to persist with.

Great read

Really enjoyed this. A real tear jerker and page turner.
