Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

The feelings evoked by the life story of Kya, the Marsh Girl, lingered with me long after I finished reading this beautifully crafted novel. Abandoned first by her mother, and then by the rest of her family, by age ten Kya was living on her own in the marsh of coastal North Carolina. This is a coming of age story, a romance, a murder mystery, and a remarkable love story about the living breathing marsh itself. - Trey

Disoriental by Négar Djavadi

This is a timely, beautifully written novel that reads like a fragmented memoir. Kimia Sadr fled Iran for France at age 10. She now sits in a fertility clinic recounting her family's history starting with her great grandfather, a feudal lord, and leading on to her dissident parents who protested the Shah's monarchy and then found themselves hated by the Islamists who deposed him. - Trey
