    Inhaltsangabe

    Until that September of 1952, Luke Chandler had never kept a secret or told a single lie. But in the long, hot summer of his seventh year, two groups of migrant workers - and two very dangerous men - came through the Arkansas Delta to work the Chandler cotton farm. And suddenly mysteries are flooding Luke’s world. 

    A brutal murder leaves the town seething in gossip and suspicion. A beautiful young woman ignites forbidden passions. A fatherless baby is born...and someone has begun furtively painting the bare clapboards of the Chandler farmhouse, slowly, painstakingly, bathing the run-down structure in gleaming white. And as young Luke watches the world around him, he unravels secrets that could shatter lives - and change his family and his town forever....

    American Arkansas story about life in 1950

    I really enjoy reading John Grisham books. They are always exciting and capturing to read. This book is different to his other books though also interesting to listen to. It’s not like his other more criminal stories. It’s about the life on a cotton farm in rural Arkansas in the 1950. About a family who has to fight to keep the farm and manage to survive. And it shows the differences in cultures and people who come to work at the farm.
    A very mature 7 year old is the narrator, which is sometimes irritating as he seems to be much older
    All in all a nice story and interesting to listen to.
