Where The Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

5/5 STARS: Eloquence meets the wild here. Like a water lily, our protagonist, Kya, hides beneath the surface and blooms above it. Our love for her grows as she does in this intriguing coming of age story. Halfway through it turns into more of the mystery novel. I thoroughly enjoyed reading such beautiful writing of science and poetry crafted together. A breathtaking visit to the marshes of North Carolina. Even when nature explains nurture and forgiveness becomes easier to grasp and release, hurt remains. The scars fade, but never totally go away. Kya’s awareness that animal behavior is present in society is a perspective characteristic to her personality. A+ character development throughout this novel.
