Delia Owens’ latest bestseller follows ‘Marsh Girl’ from Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. In late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called ‘Marsh Girl’. Fine-tuned and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, discovering friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she aches 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 unimaginable occurs.
