༺✿ ๐‘๐„๐•๐ˆ๐„๐–༺✿ Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

TITLE: WHERE THE CRAWDADS SING
AUTHOR: DELIA OWNES
GENRE: HISTORICAL FICTION
PUBLICATION: AUGUST 14TH, 2018

Synopsis

A number one New York Times best seller and a Reese Witherspoon x Hello Sunshine book club pick.

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. 

Perfect for fans of Barbara Kingsolver and Celeste Ng, 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.

Is a full length stand-alone historical novel by new to me author Delia Owens.

I saw one of my favourite authors on Facebook posting about this book and various others commenting on it, I decided then and there to 1click it and fell in love with this unusual unique story.

My heart bled for the wee young girl Kya who was just seven years old, forgotten, left behind to fend for herself in a stark unforgiving wilderness in Carolina in the 1950's, the marsh becoming her home, earning her the name Marsh Girl many years later, the seagulls becoming her only family which didn’t leave her. Shunned by society because she was different, from the colour of her skin, to the way she dressed, she was too scared to let anyone in because if her own family walked away what's stopping others from doing the same?

One by one her family walked away leaving her with a drunken abusive father, until he also disappeared from her life.

Until one boy came into her life when she least expected it and taught her how to read and write and from that day on wards a whole new world opened up to her.

This was a heartbreaking beautifully written story which will stay with me for a very long time.

Everything we take for granted, from reading, to writing, to the clothes we have on our backs, so many lessons can be learnt within the pages of this book. This book humbled me.

This isn’t something I would normally gravitate towards but when your usual genre isn’t grabbing you like it used to you have to break out and try something new and I’m so glad I gave this one a chance.
