"This was everything I wanted in a story; romance, adventure, found families, and even a murder mystery. The landscape that Owens paints will consume you and by the end it will feel like Kya’s marsh is as familiar as your own home.

“Where the Crawdads Sing is a stunning and beautiful novel that readers will want to simultaneously savor and devour with every luxurious word. You’ll hear the gulls cry on the beach through these pages, you’ll see the light flickering through the marsh trees, you’ll smell the homemade grits sizzling on the stovetop. Your heart will ache for the lonely marsh girl and your wheels will start turning when a body is discovered, but you’ll never regret reading this gorgeous novel.”
