Sycamore Row Book Excerpt:

A sequel to A TIME TO KILL He will make them pay . . . Jake Brigance has never met Seth Hubbard, or even heard of him, until the old man's suicide note names him attorney for his estate. The will is dynamite. Seth has left ninety per cent of his vast, secret fortune to his housemaid. The vultures are circling even before the body is cold: the only subject more incendiary than money in Ford County is race, and this case has both. AS the relatives contest the will, and unscrupulous lawyers hasten to benefit, Jake searches for answers to the many questions left by Seth Hubbard's death: What made him write that last-minute will leaving everything to a poor black woman named Lettie Lang? Why did he choose to kill himself on the desolate piece of land known as Sycamore Row? And what was it that Seth and his brother witnessed as children that, in his words, 'no human should ever see'? Praise for SYCAMORE ROW 'A gripping read' - Literary Review 'A fantastic book' - 5 STAR reader review 'Just as good [as A Time To Kill] . . . an excellent climax' - 5 STAR reader review 'Grisham at his best'- 5 STAR reader review 350+ million copies, 45 languages, 9 blockbuster films: NO ONE WRITES DRAMA LIKE JOHN GRISHAM

Sycamore Row Book Excerpt:

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • John Grisham returns to the iconic setting of his first novel, A Time to Kill, as Jake Brigance finds himself embroiled in a controversial trial that exposes a tortured history of racial tension. “Welcome back, Jake. . . . [Brigance] is one of the most fully developed and engaging characters in all of Grisham’s novels.”—USA Today Seth Hubbard is a wealthy white man dying of lung cancer. He trusts no one. Before he hangs himself from a sycamore tree, Hubbard leaves a new, handwritten will. It is an act that drags his adult children, his black maid, and defense attorney Jake Brigance into a conflict as riveting and dramatic as the murder trial that made Brigance one of Ford County’s most notorious citizens, just three years earlier. The second will raises many more questions than it answers. Why would Hubbard leave nearly all of his fortune to his maid? Had chemotherapy and painkillers affected his ability to think clearly? And what does it all have to do with a piece of land once known as Sycamore Row? Don’t miss any of John Grisham’s gripping Jake Brigance novels: A TIME TO KILL • SYCAMORE ROW • A TIME FOR MERCY

Are You a Sycamore Tree Book Excerpt:

"A Word to Encourage is a ministry tool for the Christian. It is a collection of greeting books and cards written to address common concerns to uplift the reader. They can be used as a follow up tool to teach, encourage, and caution. The writings are dramatized presentations or paraphrased teachings which render an interpretation of the Word of God. A book can be sent to the receiver periodically to water the seed of the Holy Spirit, or plant the seed into the new believers heart. The writings can also be used with your prayers, to reel Christ into the heart of an unbeliever who is struggling with lifes challenges. And finally the writings can be used to console and reassure the brother or sister in Christ as God purifies their faith through illnesses, death, or other hurtful events that occur in life."

Beneath the Sycamore Tree Book Excerpt:

Beneath the Sycamore Tree is a period piece that spans from the 1960s to 1980s. While the novel’s setting is from that era, the ignorance and preconceived attitudes the protagonist as well as her family experiences are all relevant today. It chronicles the life of a young black girl from a middle-class family in Jackson, Mississippi; who through her relationship with her grandmother discovers dreams do not have to be deferred. It is an emotional journey as she travels the world, taking risks and finding what it takes to become successful. She discovers herself and love in the process with an unlikely, and at that time, forbidden lover and friend. As a black woman, her tested growth leads her to have and relish a defining relationship with her friends and lover. Lisa’s family’s experience with classicism and racism catapults her into the mindset that in order to transform the collective, she has to be willing to broach racism, sexism, and the social norms in places that perpetuated it with a clear understanding of who she is. Beneath the Sycamore Tree is unique because it exposes the reader to and defies stereotypes about people of color during one of the most challenging eras of girded underbelly segregation in the South and around the world. A little black girl becomes a determined woman because she believes in herself and held on to her grandmother’s words that she can become whomever she wants to become resulting from the love and dialogue beneath the sycamore tree.
