Our Review 

For quite a long time, bits of hearsay about Kya Clark whirled around the peaceful fishing town of Barkley Cove. Shoeless and wild, they considered her the “Bog Girl.” And when something unimaginable occurs and a young fellow is found dead, it’s Kya the Marsh Girl they fault. In Owens’ reminiscent presentation, Kya Clark is a young lady growing up essentially on her own in the wild swamps outside Barkley Cove, a little beach front local area in North Carolina. 
In 1969, neighborhood lothario Chase Andrews is seen as dead, and Kya, presently 23 and known as the “Bog Girl,” is associated with his homicide. As the neighborhood sheriff and his appointee accumulate proof against her, the account streaks back to 1952 to recount Kya’s story. Deserted very early on by her mom, she is left under the watchful eye of her hard-drinking father. Unfit to fit in at school, Kya grows up oblivious until a shrimper’s child, Tate Walker, becomes friends with her and shows her how to peruse. After Tate moves out to pursue a higher education, Kya meets Chase, with whom she starts a stormy relationship. The novel finishes in a long preliminary, with Kya’s destiny yet to be determined. Kya makes for an extraordinary champion. Owens significantly portrays the humble community show and court vain behaviors, however maybe best of everything is her distinctive depiction of the solitary North Carolina setting
