For years, rumors of the "Marsh Girl" have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. She's barefoot and wild; unfit for polite society. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark. But Kya is not what they say. Abandoned at age ten, she has survived on her own in the marsh that she calls home. A born naturalist with just one day of school, she takes life lessons from the land, learning from the false signals of fireflies the real way of this world. But while she could have lived in solitude forever, the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. Drawn to two young men from town, who are each intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new and startling world -- until the unthinkable happens.

I NOW get the hype. The ending REALLY did it for me. I don't want to spoil it for anyone but I would like to see this into a film adaptation. I appreciated the classism issues and the cultures that we are currently seeing in middle America and of the south. Although this book takes place in the late 60's it mirrors current issues and is relevant to modern America. I recommend audio book or downloadable the narration is fun especially with the southern drawls and accents. My favorite character is Sunday Justice. I want to see him on the big screen.

Beautifully written story and beautifully told by Cassandra Campbell. A real gift to American literature.
