For years, rumors of the "Marsh Girl" have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. She's barefoot and wild; unfit for polite society. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark. But Kya is not what they say. Abandoned at age ten, she has survived on her own in the marsh that she calls home. A born naturalist with just one day of school, she takes life lessons from the land, learning from the false signals of fireflies the real way of this world. But while she could have lived in solitude forever, the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. Drawn to two young men from town, who are each intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new and startling world -- until the unthinkable happens.… (mais)

    O Sol é para Todos de Harper Lee (BookshelfMonstrosity)
    BookshelfMonstrosity: Though much about these novels is dissimilar, both offer a historical Southern setting and a farcical trial that illuminates the small-minded nature of a town's inhabitants. Both atmospheric novels also feature young female protagonists who come of age under challenging circumstances.… (mais)

An interesting book, though the way it makes it possible for the main character to survive seems unlikely. But the nature descriptions are beautiful. ( )

Set mostly from the 1950s to 1970, this novel is about different times. Kya's family live in the marsh, isolated from the town and considered somewhat strange. As a child Kya is abandoned by firstly her mother, then her siblings and finally her alcoholic father and her loneliness and sense of abandonment are big themes in this novel. I have no idea to what extent social services would have pursued an at risk child in the US in those days, certainly here in the UK they were different times and I was willing to accept that people could fly under the radar, particularly when there is prejudice affecting decisions. The chapters move between Kya's childhood and 1969 and 1970 when there is a murder in the town. As a reader we never 'see' the murder so are left to make our own minds up about guilt until the last few pages. This is a coming of age story and a crime drama but it is mostly about love for the natural world and someone living what might be considered an idyllic existence so close to nature it is in her bones. This gives it a romance that many will relate to as people yearn for simpler times and feel they have strayed too far away from nature. As a novel it told a good story and I wanted to keep turning the pages and find out what happened, I liked the pace of it and I felt immersed in the world of lagoons, inlets and forest. ( )

Fiction should have some element of plausibility. Where the Crawdads Sing does not. If that doesn’t bother you go ahead but it makes me crazy. I don’t have a taste for tortured family melodramas, or reading about grinding southern poverty and despair in a pseudo-southern gothic setting but thought I would give this a go since it was so popular. Every scenario was wildly unlikely. Did the author even research the state of forensics in an impoverished coastal county fifty years ago? Did she even look into what might have been common names post WWII in the area? No, she just gave pop 21st century name to primary characters and sent other characters on wild leaps of logic. Give this a pass unless you enjoy tripe in a swampy soap opera. ( )

Great read with characters you believe in. An emotional ending up there with the Power of One for me. ( )

Beautifully written and a very compelling storyline as well. Very profound in its description of human relationships and the comparison with anjmals. I loved this book - best book I??ve read for a long time I would say. ( )
