Publisher Description

SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE—The #1 New York Times bestselling worldwide sensation with more than 12 million copies sold, hailed by The New York Times Book Review as “a painfully beautiful first novel that is at once a murder mystery, a coming-of-age narrative and a celebration of nature.”

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.

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.

Beautiful story

One of the best books I’ve ever read

Where the crawdads sing

Such an incredibly told tale … beautifully written and so compelling I couldn’t put it down. I’m sad I finished this book. It will be difficult to get Kya out of my mind. I think I’ll keep her with me for awhile.

I loved this book … I devoured it.

Where the Crawdads Sing

Extremely well written with the push and pull of the power of words magically sewn into each paragraph. The best magnetic pull to a book that I have had in quite some time….. I did not want this book to end……thank you Delia
