Why we love this book:

Delia Owens' riveting novel allows you to build an intimate relationship with the wild marshes of North Carolina through her lonely protagonist, Kya Clark. Abandoned by her mother, siblings, and abusive father, Kya grows up secluded in the marshes. She is shunned by the neighboring community in Barkley Cove, but the neighbors become suspicious of the reclusive Kya when a resident of Barkley Cove is mysteriously found dead. Is Kya responsible, or are her neighbors' paranoia about this stranger amongst their midst unwarranted? Find out in this entrancing page-turner.
