Nature sings

Nature sings out its glory in this novel. A story of loss, prejudice, loneliness, strength, love, joy and above all the beauty of nature. And there’s a murder too.
It’s an excellent read and just perfect for Earth Day 2020.

Where the crawdads sing by Delia Owens

    • Only with a wild interpretation.
      When I bought the book I had no idea what a crawdad is. And the book didn’t really enlighten me, as the main character listens to all forms of nature. It turns out a crawdad is a crustacean and whether they actually sing is a matter of contention.
      I chose a bird mug, partly because I don’t have a crustacean one 🙂 , and also because this is a Lear “runcible bird” and runcible is a nonsense word!
      In summary, I chose it with a wild and random logic!

    • I loved it too. Not something I’d normally pick based on the blurb, but the cover attracted me. I found it in a prominent position in a small bookshop in Margate, and I have a policy of buying from any independent bookshop that I find. I use Amazon a lot, as it is handy, but I always support bookshops too. It’s a bit like discounting my carbon footprint by planting a tree – I balance my Amazon purchases by supporting real shops
