Description

#1 New York Times Bestseller
A Reese Witherspoon x Hello Sunshine Book Club Pick

"I can't even express how much I love this book! I didn't want this story to end!"--Reese Witherspoon

"Painfully beautiful."--The New York Times Book Review

"Perfect for fans of Barbara Kingsolver."--Bustle


For years, rumors of the "Marsh Girl" have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life--until the unthinkable happens.

Perfect for fans of Barbara Kingsolver and Karen Russell, Where the Crawdads Sing is at once an exquisite ode to the natural world, a heartbreaking coming-of-age story, and a surprising tale of possible murder. Owens 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.

    I bought the physical book having no idea what it was about and I looked every second of it. The statement is true were “I didn’t want it to end” is actually what I thought when I finished the book. 8.9 out 10

    Where the Crawdads Sing is a rare delight. Delia Owens has created a character who springs to life from the first pages. The reader grows with Kya as she explores her world of the marsh and takes small, tentative steps into a world that has rejected her. I haven’t read a book that reaches into my soul like this book has in years.

    My motherly instincts made me want to crawl into the pages of this book and hold and protect Kya. This was the best book I’ve read in a long time. I loved all the nature descriptions and the ending was perfect.

    I started on a Monday and finished it by Thursday night. It has been quite a while that I found a book that sparked my interest so much and I couldn’t put it down. I have recommended it out to many people. Awesome read!
