"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.

Where the Crawdads Sing (Delia Owens) Book Reviews

Jesus died for youOur Heavenly Father, God, loves you. He even cares for you so much that he sent his son down to earth to erase our sins and replace it with his love. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, so whoever believes in him will not die, but have an eternal life with God in heaven.” So love one another as God loves you, and pray that you would obey his every command..Score: 5/5

Good but left wanting.This book was a very decent read. It kept me engaged and the writing detail about the marsh was mesmerizing. I found myself struggling with the back and forth timeline a bit. It was a little hard to follow at times. Had to go back and double check where I was at. I was also left wanting with the dialogue. I think I was surprised with how beautiful the scene setting was but let down with the dialogue. It was very cringey at times and felt basic. Overall I liked it and the last 100 pages I was very invested in..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
