For years, rumors of the 'Marsh Girl' have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town 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. But Kya is not what they say. 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.

Seldom can I give a book 5 stars. This seems underrated for Where the Crawdads Sing. I couldn't put it down and felt every emotion conveyed by the narrator Cassandra Campbell (my favorite woman narrator). She brought the characters to life. The author, Delia Owens, kept me captivated from start to finish and I was very sad to finish such a brilliantly written book.
I hope to be able to read more from the same author on Audible.

New York socialite Caroline Ferriday has her hands full with her post at the French consulate and a new love on the horizon. But Caroline's world is forever changed when Hitler's army invades Poland in September 1939 - and then sets its sights on France. An ocean away from Caroline, Kasia Kuzmerick, a Polish teenager, senses her carefree youth disappearing as she is drawn deeper into her role as courier for the underground resistance movement.

I found this book by sheer accident and was drawn in just by reading a short review of the story. It appealed immediately. The story is exquisitely written and the narrators were exceptional. I felt I 'knew' every character. This is one of my best books this year and I highly recommend it.
