Soooo good. Well-written. Excellent mystery. Fascinating science. ( )

This book was outstanding. I had so many emotions running through my mind - it broke my heart, made me angry, made me think and taught me many things. I also discovered that a book can absolutely bring tears to your eyes. What a story. ( )

This book blew me away. At first I wasn't sure if I was going to get into it but soon enough I found myself enthralled with the marsh girl. I had to know how her life turned out. I was captivated to say the least and this is my go to book when people are looking for recommendations. ( )

This was a nice, solid, easy to read book with a good plot and a few unique characters. And I liked it. What I don't understand is how this book has become the hottest thing since sliced bread. I kept waiting for some unique twist or plot and something else that would make this book different. But it was just a plain old regular book. There are a lot of books out there like this and sometimes I think it's just luck for a book to hit it big. ( )

Marsh is not swamp.
Crows can't keep secrets any better than mud; once they see something curious in the forest they have to tell everybody.
"There are some who can live without wild things, and some who cannot."

Book description
For years, rumors 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.
