Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens Book Summary

NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE—The #1 New York Times bestselling worldwide sensation with more than 15 million copies sold, hailed by The New York Times Book Review as “a painfully beautiful first novel that is at once a murder mystery, a coming-of-age narrative and a celebration of nature.”

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.

With love, from a born & raised North CarolinianDelia Owens does a magnificent job encapsulating the climate of the marsh and while I have bias, the locations listed in the novel had me even more entrenched and loving each chapter!

4 StarsThis one surprised me a little, which is why I gave it 4/5 stars. Before the ending, I was considering 3-3.5, but I have to give the author more credit than that because I feel that it’s difficult to actually surprise a reader or include a good twist without us guessing it too soon. It reminded me a lot of “To Kill a Mockingbird”, which may have been purposeful. Many things about the townspeople, and especially the trial, were reminiscent of that book in my opinion. I would recommend it. There were many good things. I found myself reading it every free second I got once I reached the meat of the book..Score: 4/5

Where crawdads singWonderful story, the land and the people described beautifully ... couldn’t put it down.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

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

I was not disappointed this book is absolutely amazing and only took me 6 days to read I could not put it down! I love Kya’s character and could not imagine having to live the life she did and be nearly as happy and successful as she became!
