Fairy tales are more than true not because they tell us that dragons exist but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.
—G. K. Chesterton

“Where the Crawdads Sing” is a powerful story about survival. From a tender age, Kya, the main character, is abandoned by everyone who should love, protect, and guide her through life. Unable to read or write and without money or family, Kya learns to survive on her own by turning to the only world she knows — the natural world surrounding her marsh home. As a rule, she avoids the civilized world adjacent to her marsh until two men come into her life. From them she learns about the good and the bad in humanity.
Although Kya comes to observe people through the lens of her natural world, “Where the Crawdads Sing” is about much more than the natural world. This book is an exciting murder mystery and a love story with a satisfying and surprising ending. The storyline is very well-written, but the author’s writing style surpasses it. Her language is picturesque and lyrical. It needs to be savored.
This book is a unique treasure, and I cannot imagine that anyone but Delia Owens could have written this wonderful book. Put it on your bookshelf.

It’s the kind of thing that can happen when you spend too much time bottled up inside your own head.
