I want to read books where the author takes you there; the sights, the sound, the smells, and most of all the tastes. In Kya’s details you feel the sand, see the marsh, taste the biscuits, hear the birds squawking and flying all around, hear and smell the fat poppin on Ma’s stove. There are two different stories to follow here, her story in the marsh and the murder trial of Chase Andrews. Twines together this is an elegant tale of a rough life of a you girl who becomes a women in a wild and lonesome world.
Many twists and turns. I’m a picky reader and I liked it a lot
I haven’t enjoyed a book as much as this one in a long time, an absolute must read!
This captivating story, with it’s lyrical prose and detailed description of the wild and living marshland, will make your world disappear.
Absolutely great story and writing. Easy to understand how this book was number 1 on the NYT best seller list. Highly recommend.
I really liked how well written this was AND the topic of a girl overcoming such a unique & unimaginable situation. This is a page turner folks, you will enjoy the story & how it unfolds.
