Description

#1 New York Times Bestseller
A Reese Witherspoon x Hello Sunshine Book Club Pick

"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

"Perfect for fans of Barbara Kingsolver."--Bustle


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.

Perfect for fans of Barbara Kingsolver and Karen Russell, 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.

    The best book I’ve read since The Help. I was sad when I finished it because I wasn’t ready to leave “the marsh”. The storytelling is flawless and beautiful. It’s also the first book I’ve read in a long time where I was surprised at the end! I love that; when I can’t predict the ending! This story is perfect. I just hope they don’t mess it up if they make it into a movie! Read this book!

    So much for relying on NYT best sellers list. This book was bad, really bad. I renamed it “Beverly Hillbillies go to Mayberry. I too lived in NC during this time and I think “Miz Dalyela” went back a decade too far, and about 5 states too south. It had its not so bad parts, Kya's transition into her teenage, then adult years was written very smoothly, unlike other transitions that are confusing and leaves you feeling like you missed something. I did finish it and the ending caught me by surprise, which is always nice. Just too hokey, too unrealistic, and at times, too much detail. I know alot about bird feathers now ; )
  • Best read this year

    I LOVED this book. So happy they are making a miniseries. Characters are so true and maintained their persona throughout the book. I laughed and cried. Ending was a shocker

    This is one of the best books I’ve read in a long time. Deliah Owens makes the characters become your friends. I couldn’t stop reading. I’m missing my friends now that I’ve completed reading!
  • Maybe my favorite read ever!

    The novel started a little slow to me and adjusting to the country lingo she intertwined into the story’s characters took some patience, but wow! I love this book! It’s like three stories in one. Like I paid for one, but got two more for free! Mystery, romance and suspense all rolled into one! And a science lesson to boot! Takes hold of your interest and keeps you wanting more. Can’t wait to see what Reese Witherspoon does with the movie!

    This is not something I'd normally read, I'm more of a horror/sci-fi person but wanted something different. The description intrigued me and I was not let down. Just a phenomenal book. From the feelings of despair and abandonment to the longing of basic human contact Kya feels early in the book to the dramatic turns later on I was hooked every chapter along the way, can't wait to for the authors next work.

    I read this book within 2 days, could not put down! This book made me feel all the feels, and I really wish I made it last longer. This book really has everything from mystery, independence, history, love, sadness, rage and just overall kept me turning the page even when my eyes were getting blurry from non stop reading. Kya is the ultimate hero and we all have a little bit of her in us. 10/10
