If you haven't read it yet--here's a good goal: finish it by today, and come talk about it with us.

"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."-- The New York Times Book Review

"This lush mystery is perfect for fans of Barbara Kingsolver."-- Bustle

"A lush debut novel, Owens delivers her mystery wrapped in gorgeous, lyrical prose. It's clear she's from this place--the land of the southern coasts, but also the emotional terrain--you can feel it in the pages. A magnificent achievement, ambitious, credible and very timely."--Alexandra Fuller, New York Times bestselling author of Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight

Delia Owens is the coauthor of three internationally bestselling nonfiction books about her life as a wildlife scientist in Africa-- Cry of the Kalahari, The Eye of the Elephant, and Secrets of the Savanna.
