This book will literally tear your heart out and stomp all over it. Even during parts of the book that were fulfilling, you can’t help but feel your heart aching the entire time.
I had heard the praise for this book and can only say I agree completely. It is both deeply human and moving and mind expanding.
While it is a series of flashbacks to an earlier time in South Carolina it portrays many characters in believable detail while maintaining a focus on love of nature and wild things. It never becomes preachy. Instead it remains a compelling story. It even includes an interesting courtroom drama.
Kyla the central protagonist is nearly self raised yet she manages to make herself a leading expert on the wildlife of her beloved marsh country. Because she is so endearing the reader routes for her growing abilities and gladly accepts them.
They, the author and Kyla, leave me wanting to know more about the marsh country.
Honestly, I was a little put off by the title. I thought this was going to be another low country romance novel. However, it is so well written and was a joy to read. Great story and moves at a perfect pace. An amazing story of resilience of human nature! LAC
This book was a good light read. I disagree with most reviews regarding the authors descriptive language. I found it tiresome, and a waste of words and time. While the book was good, I could put it down anytime. In fact some evenings I forgot I had a book to read. But I must say.. I LOVE the Marsh Girl!!
Boring. Can’t trust the reviews. I think they were paid to like it.
I think this book may be my favorite in all of my 82 years! So unique and spellbinding. I couldn’t put it down.
This book was a little slow to get into for me. Overall it was a good read, but it just didn’t draw me in the same way other novels have. I also was not a huge fan of the ending...
