John Grisham's Sycamore Row

Updated on September 9, 2014

I don't know about you... but I love to curl up by the log fire, with a nice warm drink and relax reading anything written by John Grisham! I think Sycamore Row has been my favorite Grisham novel to date. Captivating, compelling, and quite the page turner... this book will keep you in your seat long after you should have gone to bed! If you are a Grisham fan and liked "A Time To Kill".... this one will be must read.

He takes you back to to the courthouse in Clanton from "A Time To Kill" where Jack Brigance is of course involved in a controversial trial that brings out old racial tensions.

The main character, Hubbard, commits sucide by hanging himself from a sycamore tree. Before he dies he writes a new will. He cuts his family out compleatly and leaves the estate to his maid! Of course this sets off his children and everyone involved into the now stylized Grisham courtroom drama! As the story develops, Grisham keeps you guessing how Jack Brigance (who came into his own in "A Time To Kill") could possibly loose this case. In "Sycamore Row" racial inequality extends itself into the 20th century - laid open for all to see. The tragic climax will leave you shaken.

This is a real page turner... you won't be able to figure out what is really going on with all the twists and turns the plot takes.... just keep reading! Oh.. and don't start this unless you have the time to finish it in one sitting... really, its pretty riveting.

      It's hard to pick a favorite by Grisham! I put off reading A Time to Kill for a long time, but it was exceptional! Looking forward to reading this one too.

      I have never read any of the John Grisham books but he sure has a loyal following. Before I married I dated a fellow and he and his friends literally devoured everything that he wrote. That is quite a testimonial to his writing style.
