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.

Spellbinding

I loved this book……I saw the trailer of the film and as I didn’t know what the film was about I looked for the book.
I was gripped from the start and couldn’t wait to follow Kya and discover how she survives.
I was moved to tears at the outcome of the trial and I am now egar to see the film and see if it lives upto the book.
