Read This Now: The Index
What if there were an army of indie booksellers enthusiastically reading and reviewing practically every new book coming out in the next year, and what if the books they were the most excited about, the books they couldn't wait to push into their customers' hands with a breathless "You've GOT to read this!" (virtually or otherwise), the ones with all the nine- and ten-star ratings were carefully curated and collected in a handy list? Well, all we can say is...KEEP READING!
A most amazing story, wonderfully and beautifully written about a child abandoned at an early age who learns to survive in the marsh land on the coast of North Carolina. An epic story of her life, of finding love, of betrayal, and of murder. You’ll shed a few tears as you read...some of such sadness, a few of pure joy. I didn’t want this book to end.
Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens ($26.00*, G.P. Putnam's Sons), recommended by Fiction Addiction, Greenville, SC.
