Summary from the Publisher: Delia Owens has written a stunning first novel about an unforgettable young woman determined to make her way in the wilds of North Carolina, and the two men that will end her lifelong isolation. It is an exquisite ode to the natural world set against a heartbreaking coming of age story and a surprising murder investigation. Thought-provoking, wise, and deeply moving, Owens’s story reminds us that we are forever shaped by the children we once were, and that we are all subject to the beautiful and violent secrets that nature keeps.


This remarkable first novel has won rave reviews from across the country, praised for its beautiful language and for the author’s deep affection for the world of nature, which infuses every page. The story of Kya’s hidden life on North Carolina’s Outer Banks is a tribute to an extraordinary young woman, with a surprising mystery at its heart. What thoughts about it will we share when we meet for discussion?
