 I can just say that I loved everything about this book and l highly recommend it !

” Where the Crawdads Sing” is a story of survival, hope, loneliness, romance and strength. This book goes back and forth in time to tell the story of Kya Clark “The Marsh” girl. She lives in the quiet town in the Marsh, Barkley Cove, the North Carolina coast . Kya was a young girl when she was abandoned by her mother. Later, her siblings followed suit, leaving Kya alone with her drunk and abusive father. She had to learn to shop, to cook and to and take care of all basic needs for herself in her father’s absence.

 She was a sensitive and smart girl, who knew the marsh and found ways to live and make money. Kya grew up and learns more about life through her playing with the creatures of the Marsh.

In 1969, Chase Andrews, “star quarterback and town hot shot,” who was once Kya’s lover, was found dead. Rumors have been circulating for years about Chase and his story with the Marsh Girl. Could she be the killer? What motive could she have?

You will see in this book: murder mystery, marsh atmosphere, drama, and romance. There are several characters who give and show kindness  and emotional feelings. From the marsh environment to the police investigation and court room, real drama !!

This book is beautifully written and contains poetry and beautiful descriptions of the Marsh. I highly recommend this book! It's thoughtful, emotion, and take the reader back in time to the Marsh. I loved this novel.
