"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

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.

    I loved the descriptions of the wildlife and marsh but the insight into Kye’s life are most intriguing. I’ve read it twice and I’m sure I will read it again.

    I loved the story. I almost thought it was a nonfiction for a moment.

    OH MY GOSH; one of the best books I’ve ever read! I struggled in the beginning, maybe because they didn’t speak English well; but I am so happy I picked it back up.

  • Jesus died for you

    By Boardz20
    Our Heavenly Father, God, loves you. He even cares for you so much that he sent his son down to earth to erase our sins and replace it with his love. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, so whoever believes in him will not die, but have an eternal life with God in heaven.” So love one another as God loves you, and pray that you would obey his every command.

    The first 8 chapters were a little slow and I wasn’t sure if I was going to get into this book but then all of a sudden it got so good. This is one of my favorite books now.
