This book was given to me by a friend of my husband's, a friend I did not know shared the same love of reading that I do. He was very nonchalant about it, simply saying he enjoyed the story and thought I would as well. That's when I knew I would love the book - and I did. Have any of you read this one?
'A Painted House' is not your typical Grisham story. There are no lawyers, courtrooms or legal battles. It is written from the point of view of a seven year old boy, growing up on an Arkansas cotton farm in the early 1950's. I was swept along as the young boy went about his life of new experiences, new loves, and new understandings.
Even though the ending had me feeling the book would be best followed by a sequel (it just sort of ended), I thoroughly enjoyed it, and am interested on comments anyone else has about it.
