Sycamore Row

Ensemble. While a handful of characters in John Grisham’s novel, Sycamore Row, were reprised from the earlier book, A Time To Kill, the real success in the new novel is the huge cast of interesting and well-developed cast of complex characters through whom Grisham displays the full range of human motivation and behavior. We’re back at the Clanton courthouse in Ford County three years after the earlier novel, and attorney Jake Brigance gets a new case that will strain racial tensions in the county. The question for the court to resolve involves the settlement of a multi-million dollar estate. Grisham tells a great story in this novel, and I was thoroughly entertained, especially by the quirks of so many of the interesting characters in this book.
