Where the Crawdads Sing

Regular price £8.99

For years rumours of the "Marsh Gir" have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet little town on the North Caroline coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called marsh Girl.

But Ky is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone on 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 loved.

A murder mystery, a coming-of-age narrative and a celebration of nature which will keep you turning the pages to the final full stop.
