Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

This coming-of-age murder mystery novel intertwines two timelines that initially do not appear to be related. One follows young Kya’s fight for survival and the depth of loneliness as she grows up isolated in the marshes of North Carolina. The other one unfolds sheriff’s investigation into the apparent murder of Chase Andrews, a local celebrity of Barkley Cove, in a fictional coastal town of North Carolina.
A character by itself, the marsh is binding the two timelines, living and breathing in every page of the novel.

A survival story as well as an ode to the silent and nurturing embrace of the nature, the novel explores the challenges faced by someone who has to make the most with what one has, reminding us that we are inevitably shaped by our own inner child.
