Introduction to The Where the Crawdads Sing
Everybody knows the story of Anne of Green Gables, so most people are familiar with Lucy Maud Montgomery. But what many readers won’t know is that she went on to write several other novels and even had a successful Hollywood career—both as a writer and actress. One little-known gem among her novels is The Where the Crawdads Sing series. The Where the Crawdads Sing series is written from the point-of-view of the nameless protagonist, who has been nicknamed Kya (Quie) by her grandfather. The story takes place on a small island off the coast of North Carolina where Kya has lived with her grandparents since she was five. It’s a beautiful, isolated place that she loves with all her heart, but she also thinks of it as a prison.

The storyline of The Where the Crawdads Sing
For a long time, the people of Gilead had the water they needed—a plentiful, clean supply that never ran out. But now, in The Where the Crawdads Sing series by Crooked Tree Books, times have changed and tensions have risen. Gilead’s once abundant water source is nearly gone, and it’s all thanks to one man: John Sutter. John is a former preacher who has been given a second chance at life after receiving an experimental treatment to cure his cancer. However, the treatment has left him with a strange condition that causes his body to excrete a mysterious black liquid. When Gilead’s water supply begins to dry up, John is willing to do whatever it takes to get the water back—even if it means breaking all the rules. But John is not alone, nor is he in control of everything that goes on in Gilead.
