MYSTERIES IN THE MORNING
Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens
For years, rumors of the “Marsh Girl” have haunted the quiet town of Barkley Cove, 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. 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.
“Another non-traditional mystery, this popular fiction novel has a mystery and investigation woven through the book. Beautiful prose underlies stark circumstances, and a great coming of age story about a girl’s survival. I loved this book the moment I began reading it and wanted to share this beautiful novel with the book club.” -- Meghan
