NY Times: A Painfully Beautiful First Novel

The wildlife scientist Delia Owens has found her voice in WHERE THE CRAWDADS SING, a painfully beautiful first novel that is at once a murder mystery, a coming-of-age narrative and a celebration of nature. The [co-author] … of three books about southern Africa, Owens here surveys the desolate marshlands of the North Carolina coast through the eyes of an abandoned child. And in her isolation that child makes us open our own eyes to the secret wonders — and dangers — of her private world.
