Where the Crawdads Sing
Set in North Carolina, where in the small town of Barkley Cove suspicion, bigotry and narrow mindedness threaten those who are seen to be different and misunderstood.
This is Kya’s story, she lives a solitary life, surviving in the swamplands that border the town, living a secret existence in tune with her natural surroundings.
To the town’s folk she is almost a mythical creature, and when a local man is found dead she immediately falls under suspicion.
This is an atmospheric and beautifully crafted ‘coming of age’ novel, where the serenity of the marshes is threatened by the loss of innocence and the fear of the unknown. Heartbreaking, beguiling and critically acclaimed.
