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)

god this was stupid, and has a dark context irl and fails the bechdel test and is full of heavy-handed nature writing/ expostion, but it was immersive and enjoyable and reminded me one has permission to write implausible characters as long as it's rooted in one emotion- Kya's fairytale loneliness and abandonment- and how stupid it treats the reader, and how dumb the leaf kiss scene and disney romance and the skewed gender politics of that tool Tate literally teaching her to read and write- but it was such an escape! i commend that.

This story will rip your heart apart. Kya early years in the marsh with her abusive father and, for a while a loving mother, brothers and sisters. One by one, they abandon her, and by her 10th year, she is living alone in the shack. She evades school and, as much as possible, the people of Barkley Cove. She becomes involved with two young men from the town, and when one of them dies suspiciously, she becomes the prime suspect.

Engrossing story that is part mystery, part nature, and part exploration of the nature of isolation. ( )

Where the Crawdads Sing
By Delia Owens
2018, G. P. Putnam's Sons
Hardcover, 370pp

"Sand keeps secrets better than mud."

Some authors bloom into novelists late in life. Such is Owens's story, with this, her debut novel about a young girl's coming-of-age on coastal North Carolina in the 50s and 60s. Throw in a love triangle and a murder mystery, perspective- and time-alternations, and you've got yourself all the makings of a standard, book-club-warranting contemporary novel. Where Owens excels is in her descriptions of the natural world, which isn't surprising of someone who holds a BS in Zoology and a PhD in Animal Behavior, and a poetic flare imbued with Dickinson. The dictum "write what you know" still holds true. ( )

I'm glad I read where the crawsdads sing which put me out of my reading slump as it kept me hooked on to every page.

Where the crawsdads sing is a very well written novel by Delia Owens about a girl name Kya living in the marsh and her love for nature but more over her story to survive & build a livelihood amids her struggle through loneliness, fear, rejection and heartbreak.

Being a murder mystery book, one completely forgets that a murder is being investigated in the initial chapter of the book. The book does slip in and out of time. But the story of the marsh girl keeps a reader hooked on to the book. The book also has some beautiful written poetry for the poetry lovers.

As for the mystery part, I think the writer could have done a more better job. But all in all where the crawdads sing is definitely a pages turn.

I highly recommend it to every book lover.
