Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
A captivating and astoundingly written read that has taken the world by storm as a #1 New York Times Bestseller (for 168 weeks!), Reese’s Book Club pick and major motion picture. This book is so many things it’s impossible to encapsulate in a blurb! Murder mystery. Coming of age. Love story. Courtroom drama. Underdog triumph. Ode to nature. It possesses the intrigue of an unsolved crime for which the entire town is pointing the finger at Kya, aka “Marsh Girl,” who has managed to not only survive but thrive, alone, in the North Carolina marsh. And, the depth of a sensitive yet fiercely independent soul’s journey through the complexity of true love, the (sometimes) disappointing and (other times) heart-wrenchingly generous aspects of humankind and a reverence for the natural world that defies all odds and creates an abundant life for this resilient, talented, resourceful and scrappy young woman otherwise considered an outcast.
