I have had a copy of this book, a contest prize, for ages & just haven‘t gotten around to starting it with so many other books so I used an #Audible credit & started #audiosouping to it today. Enjoying it so far. This is an easy Tomato & Sourdough Soup from Yotam Ottolenghi. Finished soup pics to come later. 🍅🍲😋

Wow!! This was a great #lmpbc pick @BennettBookworm ! It started off a little slow, but soon I could not put it down! Kya survived alone for years in the marsh, since her family left one by one when she was a child. She teaches herself about the plants/animals that live in the swamp and finds creative ways to survive on her own. When Chase is found dead, she is suspected of murder...I loved reading along with everyone‘s comments!

While I did enjoy this one, I don‘t think it will make my top reads of the year. It was a good story and had beautiful writing but the first half of the book was a little slow and I wasn‘t always sure whether I liked Kya 🤷🏻‍♀️. I didn‘t see the ending coming tho so that was an interesting surprise. Growing up in North Carolina and visiting the coast quite a bit did make connecting with that part pretty easy. Overall a pick but not a favorite.

Princess-Kingofkings I thought it was great as an audiobook. 4d

I picked this up off my huge TBR because so many people recommended it. I can see why! Thoroughly enjoyed this atmospheric tale of abandonment, survival, nature, and possible murder. Paired nicely with a bottle of wine I chose purely based on how much I liked the kitschy retro label.

I had a really hard time starting this one despite all the rave reviews. Even one of my besties said it was her new favorite and I could not, for the life of me, figure out why. I love detailed descriptions but this almost felt like the first half of the book was just filler because it was SO descriptive. It was just too much for me. I wanted the STORY to really start, which came about half way through. Second half was solid.

BeckyB I felt the same way. Beautiful writing, but it got off to a slow start. I enjoyed it overall though. 5d

This is the 2nd story porch off our bedroom - we‘re going to get a cute hammock or some comfy furniture to make a nice oasis from the kids, but even with camp chairs, it‘s my new favorite reading spot. We‘re screening it in this weekend to keep the mosquitoes out!

I..... don't get what the fuss is over this novel. Sure, the descriptions of the natural world are gorgeous, but the characters are all stereotypes and the dialog is awful and this story has been told before. I rarely felt any emotional resonance. But I'm also not drawn to this kind of story, so it probably wasn't meant for me anyway.

This was an appropriate book to finish reading outside in my hammock. I enjoyed the story, but it didn‘t quite live up to the hype for me. Kya was fascinating, but some of her character development seemed unrealistic. The wonderful part of this story was the natural world of the North Carolina marshlands. Yet, even in this I expected more intricate details of Kya‘s learning from her own observation and experience to be shared with the reader.

Daisey Also, does the canoe on the cover bother anyone else? 1w
evapriest I‘m curious. What bothered you about the canoe on the cover? 1w
Daisey @evapriest I assume it is meant to be Kya on the cover, but she never has a canoe. She has a small beat up flat bottomed metal skiff with a motor. 1w

I couldn‘t put it down. I found it difficult to read the beginning when Kya is young (6/7) as I myself have a daughter that age and imagining her fending for herself broke my heart in two. I fell in love with Kya almost immediately. To me, this story felt so beautiful and unique.

I could not put this novel down. Literally every waking moment I had the chance of reading, I was reading. Gym, before bed, while cooking dinner. The story shows so much in-depth character development and unravels the story so beautifully that you cannot help but fall in love with Kya and Tate. I also loved seeing how the social norms changed for the seaside town.

Oh dear, I just loved it. Everything about it 😍

Much hype for this book. It was a pleasant enough experience and the writing did flow well. coming-of-age story and a tale of nature, poetry, love, murder and courtroom drama. Kya is the Marsh Girl from Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. It is 1969 and 2 young men become intrigued by Kya. Chase Andrews is found dead and the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark. Read to see how the town handles Kya during her trial.

A unique story about a girl growing up and surviving on her own in the marshes. The struggle of Kaya‘s love and hope takes you on a whirlwind.

This is the kind of book that I pick and then I cant put down. I loved the characters in this book. Kya who is the main protagonist lives in the Marsh area and one by one all her family leaves. She eventually ends up all alone as a little girl taking care of herself just surviving. Tate befriends her and teachs her how to read. This story Is part Crime part Romance. When Chase is found murdered all fingers point to Kya..did she kill Chase Andrews?

cj82487 Omg I still think about this book! I loved the imagery and I wanted to finish but didnt want it to end at the same time! & Jumpin was my favorite character. Him and his wife (cant remember her name) took in Kya and did as much as they could. This one totally lived up to the hype 2w
mandi1082 @cj82487 yes these are the kind of books that just suck you in and you cant put down. Delia Owen's did such a good job writing this book. 2w

There's times like this when I give five stars even when the story isn't my favorite, but I'm able to recognize and appreciate when the author pulls off a great literary work. I liked the story well enough, but I was more impressed by the many great aspects of the book. There was great, descriptive nature writing, emotionally-triggering events & characters, and the author's ability to transport the reader into every moment of the book. Beautiful.

Princess-Kingofkings Well said ~ I felt as if I could picture each scene. Wherever I see the book cover, an image of a scene comes to mind. 🚣🏻‍♀️ 2w

"For most people, what is so painful about reading is that you read something and you don't have anybody to share it with. In part what the book club opens up is that people can read a book and then have someone else to talk about it with. Then they see that a book can lead to the pleasure of conversation, that the solitary act of reading can actually be a part of the path to communion and community."~Bell Hooks
