BLURB

Number-one New York Times best seller A Reese’s Book Club + Hello Sunshine on Audible Pick “I can’t even say in words how much I love this book… the way it’s done on Audible just took me back to my long summers in Tennessee. This story has a special place in my heart-I didn’t want it to finish.” (Reese Witherspoon) “Painfully gorgeous.”

Barkley Cove, a peaceful town on the North Carolina shoreline, has been plagued for years by rumours of “Marsh Girl.” So the locals instantly fear Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl, when beautiful Chase Andrews is discovered murdered in early 1969. But they’re not saying Kya. Sensitive and smart, in the marsh that she calls house, she has lived for years alone, discovering companions in the gulls and sand courses. Then arrives the moment she longs to be held and enjoyed. When her crazy ##ness intrigues two youthful people from city, Kya closes herself to a fresh existence-until the unthinkable occurs.

Perfect for fans of Barbara Kingsolver and Karen Russell, Where the Crawdads Sing is at once an exquisite ode to the world of nature, a heartbreaking story of the coming of age, and a surprising tale of possible murder. Owens reminds us that we’re always formed by the kids we once were, and that we’re all subordinate to the lovely and brutal truths life holds.
