    Dræb ikke en sangfugl af Harper Lee (BookshelfMonstrosity)
    BookshelfMonstrosity: Though much about these novels is dissimilar, both offer a historical Southern setting and a farcical trial that illuminates the small-minded nature of a town's inhabitants. Both atmospheric novels also feature young female protagonists who come of age under challenging circumstances.… (mere)

Kurze Inhaltsangabe
Chase Andrews stirbt, und die Bewohner der ruhigen Küstenstadt Barkley Cove sind sich einig: Schuld ist das Marschmädchen. Kya Clark lebt isoliert im Marschland mit seinen Salzwiesen und Sandbänken. Sie kennt jeden Stein und Seevogel, jede Muschel und Pflanze. Als zwei junge Männer auf die wilde Schöne aufmerksam werden, öffnet Kya sich einem neuen Leben – mit dramatischen Folgen. Delia Owens erzählt intensiv und atmosphärisch davon, dass wir für immer die Kinder bleiben, die wir einmal waren. Und den Geheimnissen und der Gewalt der Natur nichts entgegensetzen können.

A girl is left largely alone to grow up in the tidal marshes of the coast of North Carolina, abandoned again and again by family, friends, and lovers; shunned by the townspeople; almost a feral savant with no formal education. Kya, aka Marsh Girl, aka Catherine Danielle Clark, is a well-drawn protagonist on this novel, which is part crime drama, part romance, part social commentary, part celebration of nature and place. At times I found the story tedious and somewhat beyond belief, but the writing is lyrical and the story memorable. ( )

The genius of this book is the murder mystery. That kept me going through the inevitable formulaic romance. It was rated highly for me in my recommendations but I really should have passed because I find romances boring. ( )

Thoroughly enjoyed. Was surprised by the ending. KIRKUS REVIEWA wild child?s isolated, dirt-poor upbringing in a Southern coastal wilderness fails to shield her from heartbreak or an accusation of murder.?The Marsh Girl,? ?swamp trash?Catherine ?Kya? Clark is a figure of mystery and prejudice in the remote North Carolina coastal community of Barkley Cove in the 1950s and '60s. Abandoned by a mother no longer able to endure her drunken husband?s beatings and then by her four siblings, Kya grows up in the careless, sometimes-savage company of her father, who eventually disappears, too. Alone, virtually or actually, from age 6, Kya learns both to be self-sufficient and to find solace and company in her fertile natural surroundings. Owens (Secrets of the Savanna, 2006, etc.), the accomplished co-author of several nonfiction books on wildlife, is at her best reflecting Kya?s fascination with the birds, insects, dappled light, and shifting tides of the marshes. The girl?s collections of shells and feathers, her communion with the gulls, her exploration of the wetlands are evoked in lyrical phrasing which only occasionally tips into excess. But as the child turns teenager and is befriended by local boy Tate Walker, who teaches her to read, the novel settles into a less magical, more predictable pattern. Interspersed with Kya?s coming-of-age is the 1969 murder investigation arising from the discovery of a man?s body in the marsh. The victim is Chase Andrews, ?star quarterback and town hot shot,? who was once Kya?s lover. In the eyes of a pair of semicomic local police officers, Kya will eventually become the chief suspect and must stand trial. By now the novel?s weaknesses have become apparent: the monochromatic characterization (good boy Tate, bad boy Chase) and implausibilities (Kya evolves into a polymath¥a published writer, artist, and poet), yet the closing twist is perhaps its most memorable oddity.Despite some distractions, there?s an irresistible charm to Owens? first foray into nature-infused romantic fiction.

This book reminds me of Tarzan, a female version with a different premise. It may sound unrealistic at the start but as the story progressed, it turned out to be an amazing one! Indeed, a great book to kickstart my first read of the year 2024!

In summary, Kya was abandoned by her family when she was young and has been surviving on her own in the marsh. As she grew older, Tate comes along and befriended her, teaching her how to read since she didn't attend school. When Tate did not return as promised during his university breaks, Kya was devastated as she had been abandoned again. Along came Chase who tried to woo and eventually bedded Kya successfully. Unfortunately, another sad turn as she found out that Chase was getting married from the newspapers. As the story unfolds progressively, it shows the strength and will power of a young girl who survived her childhood to adulthood on her own.

The overall story was bizarre and there were gaps initially but as the story progressed once she hits adulthood, it definitely felt relevant. The little flaws do not maketh the story poor and it sure was an engaging journey learning how a little girl survived on her own. It may not sound as logical, similarly to Tarzan, and yet it was intriguing enough. I am just glad of the outcome at the end, though I had my own suspicions, I was still amazed at how it ended albeit a little rushed/short.

I have read lots of rave reviews of this novel, so I was a little skeptical initially as I didn't want to be disappointed and felt that it's overrated. I have experienced such sad outcome of late, so I have lowered my expectations lah. Thankfully, this novel just got better and better! I liked how the author has written and paced the journey which do keep me interested. I was anxious to know how it ends and yet I did not want to flip the pages. I wanted to read it continuously until the end, not wanting to miss a thing! I'm just glad to have completed it and rated it 5/5 according to my satisfied palate.

I understand that it has made it to the big screen, but I have yet to watch it. If you have read the book and watch the adaptation, was it as good as the book? I have gotten my copy from Revitalize Books, an online books-for-rent shop. I'm happy to be able to read more and not own as many books. The lesser the hoarding, the better lah LOL! My reading target for this year is 30 books, an increase of 5 from 25 last year. I sure hope to read more from my TBR this time and not buy any more books *fingers crossed* LOL! What is your reading goal this new year? ( )

Steeped in the rhythms and shadows of the coastal marshes of North Carolina’s Outer Banks, this fierce and hauntingly beautiful novel centers on...Kya’s heartbreaking story of learning to trust human connections, intertwine[d] with a gripping murder mystery, revealing savage truths. An astonishing debut.
tilføjet af Dariah | RedigerPeople
A painfully beautiful first novel that is at once a murder mystery, a coming-of-age narrative and a celebration of nature....Owens here surveys the desolate marshlands of the North Carolina coast through the eyes of an abandoned child. And in her isolation that child makes us open our own eyes to the secret wonders—and dangers—of her private world.

Crows can't keep secrets any better than mud; once they see something curious in the forest they have to tell everybody.
"There are some who can live without wild things, and some who cannot."
The shack sat back from the palmettos, which sprawled across sand flats to a necklace of green lagoons and, in the distance, all the marsh beyond. Miles of blade-grass so tough it grew in salt water, interrupted only by trees so bent they wore the shape of the wind.
Mostly, the village seemed tired of arguing with the elements, and simply sagged.
The rain eased. A single drop, here then there, shook a leaf like the flick of a cat's ear.
