Description:
How long can you protect your heart? 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.

This novel traces the life story of the central character, Kya Clark, from girlhood to maturity and her solitary, lonely, furtive and self-sufficient existence immersed in the ecology and landscape of the coastal marshlands of North Carolina which are described vividly. Kya sees the interactions of local human society in purely ecological terms. The story is a chronological account of her life interspersed with chapters following a murder investigation more than twenty years into the future. Gradually the two narratives collide in a present where the major events of the novel take place. The novel touches on themes of abandonment, exclusion, and loneliness but above all it is a good story; tense, compelling and original. Some aspects of the plot slightly strain credulity but it is a haunting novel that lingers in the mind. Highly recommended. Simon@Stafford
