Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

This book is all the rage right now, and I can see why. I’m not a big murder mystery fan and this book is that…but it’s so very much more. Kya is a thoroughly unique protagonist, and the gorgeous prose brings to life the marshes every bit as beautifully as Pat Conroy. The setting is as much a character as Kya, and if I’ve ever read a character who broke my heart yet filled me with admiration more than she did, I can’t recall it. She’s as memorable as Scout, as much larger than life as Scarlett (if her diametric opposite, except in being a survivor)…I shouldn’t even be trying to compare her to anyone else because she is so poignantly, beautifully original. Literary fiction meets mystery meets travelogue…all with a twist that will make your heartache and your admiration soar. Kudos, Ms. Owens!  You can buy the book here!
