Shelfari edited the description of Blood in the Marsh Saturday, May 15, 2010.
Sometimes things are not what they seem - nor are people. Lyra Seville is about to find out that little in her life is as she believed it to be. She's come home for the summer to St. Simon's island where she grew up. She plans on relaxing and coming to terms with the loss of someone close to her. But fate has other plans in mind for Lyra. Just as she has returned to the island, so has something old and evil. Something that once caused much blood to be spilled in the sandy soil and marsh. Lyra will discover that evil can present itself in a form that is too appealing - so attractive that it's hard to recognize its true nature. She'll face the biggest test of her life and make decisions that could cost her life. And if she's very lucky, she'll find the love she's dreamed of. And survive.
