"Waiting On" Wednesday: Sycamore Row

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:


Sycamore Row

By John Grisham
Publication Date: October 22

From Amazon:

John Grisham's A Time to Kill is one of the most popular novels of our time. Now we return to that famous courthouse in Clanton as Jake Brigance once again finds himself embroiled in a fiercely controversial trial-a trial that will expose old racial tensions and force Ford County to confront its tortured history.

Seth Hubbard is a wealthy 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 Jake 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.''



What's your "waiting on" pick this week?

I've only read one Grisham novel, and I enjoyed it. I might have to grab a couple on tape to listen to during my commute. Great pick!

I used to read his book a long time ago before i developed a taste for paranormal and urban fantasy books. Happy reading.

I never read anything by Grisham before but someday I do want to. They have a lot of his books in my library actually.
Great pick!

I confess, I haven't read any Grisham books. But I have family who has and liked them. Hope this one is good.

I'm really exciting for all the new books to come out. @ Lizzy I have such a hard time listening to books, I prefer to read them, I find that I lose a lot of detail when i listen to them.

I loved A Time to Kill, but I read it so long ago, I might need to go back and re-read it before reading this one.

A Time to Kill was the first John Grisham novel I ever read, and is still my favorite, so this may be one I'd read!
