Kya was abandoned by her mother when she was only six. Soon after, her four older siblings left, as did her alcoholic father a couple of years later. Sensitive and intelligent, Kya has survived for years alone in the North Carolina marsh that she calls home, learning both to be self-sufficient and to find solace and company in her natural surroundings. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life–until the unthinkable happens. This bestselling novel by Delia Owens is at once an exquisite ode to the natural world, a heartbreaking coming-of-age story, and a surprising tale of possible murder.
