Where The Crawdads Sing – Delia Owens – Bookrush 2

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.

My Thoughts:
This book made me laugh, cry and fall in love with the marsh land.

I absolutely loved this book, it was so beautifully written and brought me to tears a couple of times but made me smile. Kya is such a beautiful character and has such an amazing, deep soul that you can’t help being drawn towards.

This book is all about Kya who has been abandoned by everyone except the nature around her in the marsh lands. She learns from them and learns to fend for herself in a world that is silent from all man made sounds apart from the marsh boats.

This book touches on racism, segregation, abandonment and overall the love we need to be showing each other.

I’m having so much trouble reviewing this book because I absolutely loved it and can’t fault it at all. This book deserves all the praise it gets. It is magical.

Please if you haven’t read it get a copy here.

  2. I’m not sure I’ve ever heard a negative review of this book. It really sounds like a wonderfully written story. I haven’t read it yet myself, but it’s on my TBR. I hope to read it in January! (My list is packed through the rest of the year haha)
