A Painted House by John Grisham

Oh so many years ago a friend forced me to borrow her latest John Grisham lawyer novel.  I protested and protested, but ended up bringing it home.  And have read 99% of what he has written since.  Often I have been impressed.  Sometimes disappointed.  A Painted House is a keeper.

This book is completely unrelated to lawyering.  It talks about life on a cotton farm a long time ago.  It talks about perspectives, dreams, reality, community, relationships, classes of people, and life.

Through the thick and the thin, the author keeps a sense of humor that has made this one of the few books I’ve read again.

I think this will become one of my summer reading novels, year in and year out.
