Keeping the review short and sweet without spoilers.
Abandonment and perseverance despite the odds. Marsh Girl aka Kya Clark is left to fend for herself among the wilds of Barkley Cove NC. This is her story. A murder mystery and trial are thrown in for good measure. Poses questions about life in general, defying stereotypes. Who we call family and who we can count on in times of trouble. And an inner strength we possess in absence of that.
I really enjoy when fiction takes me away but also makes me think. A quick read in two parts. Aptly titled chapters. Poems sprinkled within. I ended up with three pages front and back for my common place book. I highly recommend. Time well spent.
As always, more to come.
