A Painted House, by John Grisham
Read and reviewed in April, 2004; no longer in my possession
This book was wonderful - I couldn't put it down! I was so interested in the characters and their lives, and I still wonder how some of them turned out.
Unlike most of Grisham's novels, this is a "coming-of-age" type story about a boy in rural Arkansas in the early 1950's - the trials and tribulations of farming,
and the people who populate the town and their own farm during harvesting season.
It involves detailed descriptions of violent scenes, so it is not for the squeamish.
