    An absorbing story

    Beginning in 1952, "Where the Crawdads Sing" tells the story of Catherine Danielle Clark, known as "Kya" or the "Marsh Girl". Living in poverty with her family in the marshes of rural North Carolina, Kya is 6 years old when the story begins. Her father was abusive, and as a result her mother and her siblings left their lives behind. Several years later, when her father deserts her, Kya is left to fend for herself. With no formal education, Kya scrounges to support herself, isolated from others and with few personal relationships. She develops friendships with two local boys, Tate (who taught her to read) and Chase. In 1969, when Kya is 23 years old, Chase is found dead, and Kya is accused of killing him. Beautifully written, "Where the Crawdads Sing" is a story of loneliness, strength, and endurance which will stay with the reader for a long time. A great read!

    Excellent read.

    Could not put the book down. Besides not being able to turn the pages fast enough I was completely mesmerized by the strength and intelligence of this girl turned woman who started life with nothing and no one and turned her life around. Not even prejudice, loathing and disgust from her townspeople could extinguish the gifts and talents that eventually blossomed. Great read!

    Where the Crawdads sings

    I just finished this exceptional book, a story of a lonely little girl who becomes an empowered woman, making the best out of every hardship that she faced. So many vivid sensory details of nature, the scenery, animals and the interactions with other characters. I could envision Kya's experiences with the beautifully written words, painting pictures of her feelings and her surroundings. This book allowed me to feel sadness, angry, frustration, excitement, happiness and of course, love. Loved the supporting characters- Tate, Jumpin and Mabel, and all the life lessons within this novel. Can't wait for her next novel.
