"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.

Review

  • Riveting !!

    By Nessland10
    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.
  • Loved it

    This book was amazing from start to finish. I read the entire thing in three days. I never wanted to put it down. A work of art!
  • Could Not Put This Down!

    By Superwomman
    I am from Southern parents - but only after reading this vibrantly descriptive writing did I want to be Southern! I could not put this book down until I read it start to finish! And I will want to read it again, just to be enveloped into this world alongside Kya.
  • WOW

    By Jill Thorne
    The raw emotion interlaced with exquisite imagery pulls you in from the first page. An unconventional coming-of-age story filled with all the fears and desires we all keep secret. An absolute must read!

    Started off a little slow for me and took a little over 2 months to read, but kept with it and cried my heart out in the end. Such a good read. One of my favorite books for sure.
