Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
This fictional story of a young girl abandoned by her family in the marsh of North Carolina will capture your interest. What begins as a sad story of an abusive father and his neglected child evolves into a coming-of-age story mixed with murder mystery. The two intertwining tales tell the story of Kya, the Marsh Girl, and her life in the wilderness. You won’t want to put it down!
I’ve been seeing this book everywhere and hearing about how good it is. It had been on my “want to read” list for a while. I was lucky to receive a copy for Christmas and finally got to dig in to this much-anticipated novel in January. It was unique in the way it combines two distinct plot lines. I really enjoyed reading it!
