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. 9820 note Dear Goodreaders If you loved this book I m very happy for you As a reader and also somebody who works in the publishing industry I want all readers to like or love as many books as possible so the fact that you love this book is in my opinion a good thing If reading a review that does not agree with your opinion enrages you don t read this review I do not believe there are spoilers in my opinion but a couple of commenters think there are So if you have not yet read this book you may not want to read my review I read it uite a while ago and have moved on to many books that I m interested in So I won t be joining conversation in the comments If you disliked this book you may enjoy having some company in your opinion Betsy RobinsonThe ReviewNormally I would not finish let alone review a book I disliked as much as I did this one but since I bought the book and am reading it for my book club I ve decided to say what I thinkI found the writing of this romancemurder mystery to be painfully split almost as if there were two different authors an experienced one for the vivid narrative and an amateur for dialogue and character development which in fact may be the case since the author s an experienced nature writer and this is her first novelThe story is told in two time periods Young Kya left alone in the marsh to fend for herself starts the story in 1952 and police investigate a murder in 1969 The opening lyrical descriptions of the swampland and inner thoughts of the swamp kids had soul I loved felt and smelled the land sea air and dense plants But when people started talking the writing became stilted overwritten and unbelievable This happened in the earlier time period with Kya and a boy and the boy and his dad and same thing with the 1969 police dialogue The kids scenes had an after school TV special sound and the police scenes sounded canned like a marshlands of North Carolina version of Law and Order where exposition is awkwardly inserted to move the story forward or there is overwriting that takes away from what could have sounded authentic to the region For example a deputy says to his sheriff I m hungry Let s go by the diner on the way out there Well get ready for an ambush Everybody in town s pretty riled up Chase Andrew s murder s the biggest thing s happened round here maybe ever Gossip s goin up like smoke signals Well keep an ear out We might pick up a tidbit or two Most ne er do wells can t keep their mouths shut 61Why not just I m hungry and cut to the wonderful description of the Barkley Cove Diner and the scene of people gossiping about the crime In real life people do not say everything they re thinking or narrate everything that s happening or is going to happen In fact most of us lie about what we really think if we are even self aware enough to know our subconscious thoughts Leaving out thoughts leaving gaps in truth and trusting the characters a writer has created allows subtext and real character to drive things forward There is none of that hereI found the character development absurd Simply put there are no authentic complex characters Kya starts as a believable swamp rat which is inconsistent with what we learn about the derivation of her parents Her voice is unbelievably inconsistent throughout the book Then there are the two one dimensional romances one of which allows her to learn to read at age 14 and grow into an educated sophisticated poetry reciting biologist knowing lyrics to songs she never would have heard etc and the other a sexual relationship where she doesn t even think about getting pregnant although she seems to have learned all her biology from the esoteric scientific texts she readsI finished this book by skimming large sections starting at page 164 when the entire plot became apparent sans an end of book twist which was intellectually fun but just as unbelievable as the manipulations of Kya s character Sorry

All of you talked me into reading this book The Goodreads reviews were virtually unanimously good not just good great It had to be good I thought And because I needed an extra audiobook I bought it on Librofm and locked myself into reading it Bad decisionThis book is just a pile of tropes and cliches dressed up in some nice nature writing The plot is not much of a plot and the mystery makes up only a small section of the book and much of it ends up being courtroom scenes and not much mystery This book is basically Manic Pixie Dream Girl In the Marsh We spend a long time with young Kya abandoned fending for herself almost entirely isolated I was willing to be patient through all that to see what kind of person she would grow into because that had the potential to be very interestingExcept it was not It became less interesting the longer I read Because Kya doesn t act like a person who has been almost entirely isolated She just acts like a regular loner Sure she may have some habits that fit with her strange upbringing but she seems to understand people and language just like a regular person I was nearly out of my head with frustration that the book had spent so long telling me how different she was only to have her be just the same as most people Deciding to never love again because everyone leaves you is a pretty regular person thing to do when you re in your 20 s for exampleThis isn t a book of deep psychological insight You can probably guess from a couple of chapters in how it will end And you would be right There are no real revelations the plot is pretty obvious ahead of time And it s all rather confusing because there are sections where Owens writes well her courtroom scenes are actually uite competent but on both the broad strokes and the specific details nothing here really rings true And the time that passed the I got annoyed with this book so it finally fell from 3 stars to a rare 2 star review I usually uit a 2 star book If you re going to give me a plot I ve seen a thousand times at least wrap it in some keen insight or character development But sadly this was a failure for me all around
