Based on Delia Owens’s critically-lauded page-turner, Where the Crawdads Sing centres on Kya, the endlessly resourceful resident of a North Carolina marsh. We meet her as a child in the early ’50s, as she is abandoned by her parents and older siblings, and learns to survive on her own. She is taught to read and write by her friend Tate Walker and falls for him, but is left behind once again when he goes to college. Enter Chase Andrews, a quarterback who draws Kya into a tryst with promises of marriage that never materialise. After she ends their relationship, he attacks her and she narrowly escapes. Then, while she’s away, Chase is found dead and Kya is engulfed in a murder trial – and the evidence against her seems insurmountable.
The novel this book is based on has sold over 4.5 million copies world-wide and winner of the British Book Awards Pageturner Book of the Year 2021.
