WHERE THE CRAWDADS SING BY DELIA OWENS
For years, rumours 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 Marsh Girl.
Where the Crawdads Sing is a juxtaposition of an exquisite ode to the natural world against a profound coming of age story of Kya.
The debut novel of retired wildlife biologist Delia Owens doesn’t quite fit into any genre – it is a coming of age narrative, a murder mystery and a stunning portrayal of nature, all wrapped in one. A story of resilience, hope, love, loss, prejudice and nature; it is a thought-provoking and deeply moving read.
