My Review of Sycamore Row by John Grisham

Jack Brigance, the hero of A Time To Kill, written by John Grisham, is once again called upon to try a sensitive and potentially explosive case in front of a jury. It’s been three years since the murder trial ended in an acquittal that freed his client and put him on the map in Ford County and changed his life. Now, as he’s getting his life back together, he’s asked by a dead man to represent a handwritten will that cuts out the man’s children and leaves the entire fortune to a housekeeper, a black woman. Seth Hubbard, one of the older names in the county, is a stranger to him, but Jack takes the responsibility seriously and dives into the controversy once again, because in the South in 1989 in Ford County this is still fertile ground for an uprising and it is the backdrop of this story. Why would a white man deny his children an inheritance and leave $24 million to his housekeeper? What is the significance of the land once called Sycamore Row? Jack must walk the tightrope between racial tension and justice once again to do the right thing.

Sycamore The story is well written, interesting, and exciting enough to keep you turning the pages. A Time to Kill was one of my favorite novels when it first came out and John Grisham has once again delivered a quality read in Sycamore Row.
