"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

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.

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.

Slow starting, worth sticking it out!I started this book about 2-3 times before finally getting through the first couple of chapters. Once I got to the end of the book, I understand the importance of so much detail….it highlights the world so you have deeper understanding of the time, the place, the characters, as it progresses. You truly are immersed into the story, rather than just reading it. Wish I could experience this book for the first time all over again 🤍.Score: 5/5

Best book I’ve EVER read!!I can’t put into words how amazing this book is. I never wanted it to end. It’s so raw you can physically feel the pain, beauty, and joy. I had to reread the ending probably 10 times because it is so gripping and touches your heart. I can’t even find another book to read after this one that can top it! It’s so good that I bought a hard copy just to keep at home in my collection. I’ve finished this book a month ago and still think about the characters and story line. It has you hooked from the beginning and gets better and better the deeper into the story you go. A MUST READ.Score: 5/5

I’m grateful to whatever it was that kept drawing me back to this book after setting it aside in the beginning for weeks at a time. I experienced something from a book I never have, fiction or non fiction. Not a huge dawn of enlightenment, no big revelations. It’s a subtle feeling of being.

Riveting !!After everyone recommending I read this book I finally sat down and read it in one sitting. The story enwrapped me from beginning to end and the characters stayed with me for weeks after. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is because of how the story was wrapped up. In order to reveal something in the end the author forwarded the story many years and a lot got lost for me there. I know life most of the time doesn’t tie most loose ends, but I felt there wasn’t fair retribution to the main characters. It just left a bad taste in my mouth..Score: 4/5

Most beautifully and vividly written story of love and acceptance.One of the best, if not the BEST story I have ever read. Your senses will be heightened as you see, smell, feel, hear and learn of the inhabitance of the coastal waters of North Carolina in 1969, from the perspective of a female raised lonely and alone from the tender age of 6. The author’s poetically woven words will captivate you. You will empathize with the one girl no one showed empathy for, other than Jumpin’, his wife Mabel, brother Jodie, and true love, Tate. Through love and betrayal The Marsh Girl goes from being the dirty monster everyone rejected to legend and loved by the locals of Barkley Cove. Nothing is ever too far away to be able to change and this book teaches that change and love sometimes come at a price but love and forgiveness and acceptance in the end are all that matter..Score: 5/5

As murky, marvellous and misunderstood as the marsh itselfAn incredible story about survival that, at times sways towards the incredulous. The pity, pride and love we feel for this little rag-a-muffin turns into reproachful worrying as she grows up. When Kya becomes a woman, the story takes a turn straight into a harlequin romance novel and then straight into an old fashioned whodunnit. It is, first and foremost a tale about prejudice, but not in the traditional sense of racial inequality. It is about abuse brought on by personal torment. It is about finding solace and beauty when you have nothing else. It is about finding your soul and keeping your sanity, in the written word..Score: 4/5
