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.

   Love of Nature; Love of Self
Kya is a product of her parents' abandonment and of her will to survive. Although she both fears and longs for human contact, when she does take a chance on love it turns out badly. Some of this is due to circumstances; some is due to lust. The ending is not totally surprising but Owens has woven it into the entire story so that when it happens your feelings for Kya are not diminished. An excellent read!
