Found this one under the mysteries sections, and while it wasn’t the thriller I was looking for, it was the love story I needed. Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens is a heartwarming story about passion.
First of all, I’ll pick up any book that Reese Witherspoon recommends, she has a serious eye for books (or maybe her PR person does…?). We can only hope she picks this one up to make a movie or series out of it (as she did with Big Little Lies and Wild).
What its Like to Read This Book
You’ll grow up wild alongside the Marsh Girl, feel her isolation from the townspeople and the fear of a prison sentence for the murder of a local man. Your heart will break alongside hers, like any other young girl who fell in love; and you’ll feel the warm of truly kind people.
“She knew the years of isolation had altered her behavior until she was different from others, but it wasn’t her fault she’d been alone. Most of what she knew, she’d learned from the wild. Nature had nurtured, tutored, and protected her when no one else would.”
