Sycamore Row by John Grisham Book Summary

#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 John Grisham’s new book, THE EXCHANGE: AFTER THE FIRM!

Slow start - fast finish.. Took way too long to set the characters and the situations, then put it all together in one finishing chapter.

Not one of his best works. Decent plot with somewhat predictable yet still enthralling ending. Dozens of characters to remember though few are developed to their potential. Nowhere near the original that was so deeply captivating.

Footsteps. This was a great follow up to A Time To Kill. Grisham, once again, masterfully weaves a story that leaves me tired and wanting more. I found myself engrossed in the plot to the point of not wanting to put it down!

Great story. Typical John Grissom, entertaining and educational.

Sycamore Row. Poorly told. Not the usual high standard of writing.

Excellent follow up to A Time to Kill!. I love everything about this book and hope there will be another with Jake Brigance soon!

Sycamore row. This is a great read! I really hadn't read a Grisham book for some time...but this story kept me guessing and reading. Now I'm hooked again on this author and looking to purchase his next book. Thank you for a great story.

Excellent read!. Compelling from page one. This book exceeded my high expectations.

Sycamore row. Excellent book.

Another hit by Grisham. Grisham has always been one of my favorite author, especially his legal thriller. I have stayed away from some of his other books, but was glad to see him do this follow up of "Time to Kill". But, I will always like his legal thrillers!

Good read. Reels you in from the outset. Great characters and a good read. A bit predictable but the story is a reminder of the South’s dark past.

Great ending. Some parts required intense reading, some parts easily absorbed. Loved how everything came together at the end.

Sycamore Row. Finally read this and was not at all disappointed. The intricate circumstances, lives and goals were really presented in an interesting and understandable way. I was captivated by the deep emotions and the realistic friendships that existed between lawyers, police and the judge. The ending was so satisfactory, although I could not come up with a solution on my own. I have a lot of reading of John Grisham to do!

No words .... Best. John grasham at his best

Sycamore Row. This book is more timely now than when it was written.

Good. I was hoping for some murder etc but this book was just plain good!! Kept my interest without all the blood, murder and twists & turns! It was a good legal read. I’ll definitely read the next book in the series!!!

A Great Read!. Truly enjoyed reading this book! So very crafty of JG. So many times during the read I felt like I was right in the story and couldn’t wait to turn the next page!

Keeps you guessing. This book keeps you guessing, you think Jake is done and will lose the case. Lucien comes through in way you never thought would happen.

Sycamore Row. When attempting to try to explain the impact and depth of intrigue and interest this literary work had on me I find that words fail. It was and is nothing short of genius.

Sycamore Row. All I can say is I couldn't put it down. Absolutely AWESOME BOOK!

Classic Grisham. As soon as I started this book, I knew it would be one I would enjoy. Love the "old" Grisham!

Grisham at his best!. Grisham writes with such depth. He tells the story from all sides and his characters are raw and real and flawed—even the good guys. I was immediately drawn in and couldn’t read the book fast enough to see what happened next. It’s a story about the best and worst of our laws, of our legal system and ultimately of us. We can’t find our way forward without looking at our history—all of it, not just the nice things. I had my doubts that this would be as good as “A Time to Kill.” I was mesmerized.

Predictable. Long, boring and predictable. Not my favorite

Great book. Wow, interesting read and a great follow-up to A Time to Kill. Hopefully it won't be another 20years before we hear from Jake again

Tear bursting twist at the end.... Very well written and touching!

Classic- No spoiler. Just another brilliant work by John Grisham! It was great to get back to Clanton and see how all the guys were doing. I love it mostly because I'm from Mississippi and loved "A Time To Kill".

Sycamore Row. This book is so well written that I proactively sought out a place to write a review. John Grisham is master at recreating realistic courtroom drama and complex southern characters. This is his best work and I believe is equal to A Time to Kill. A real tear streamed down my face when I read the last page

Awesome Read. I love this book! It is a great read. My daughter enjoyed listening to me tell her how much I loved it.

Sycamore Row. Awesome to see Jake Brigrance come to life again! I want more!

Realistic and satisfying. Realistic characters and context. Well written as with all of his novels. I would like to see Jake again and maybe develop his personal relationships a little more in depth.

Sycamore Row. Another Grisham page turner with a satisfying ending. Hard to put down, as usual. Only two minor technical comments. "Present and accounted for" is redundant. It should be "present OR accounted for". If you are present, you don't need to be accounted for. Secondly, an acronym is initials which are pronounced as a word, such as OSHA. I don't know how you would pronounce PTC.

Predictable. Ending was pretty obvious early in the book. Still a good story.

Interesting but not riveting. I enjoyed the southern setting and characters but the story was slow to evolve. When the book was finished I felt glad to be through the story instead of being disappointed that there were no more pages.

Greatest John Grisham book ever.. I really enjoyed this book. Thank you for this. I can't wait to read more and more!

Sycamore Row. Returning to Jake, Ozzie, Lucian was Like going home again. Excellent story of redress of a horrible Wrong and yet in the end sharing.

Sycamore Row. I’ve read many of Mr. Grisham’s novels. This one escaped me so many years ago. I’ve read several Ford County novels, and the legal thrillers, and also the unusual Painted House masterpiece. My favorite writer, just found this in 2018. You are an inspiration to all modern day authors, Mr. Grisham. Clean, riveting, and fun. Thank you.

Sycamore Row. Another page turner by Grisham. The overtones of the ending, however, leave you more depressed than his usual feel good endings.

Sycamore Row. As always. Wonderful story line, great reveal of characters and great lessons in law!

Pretty good story. Takes awhile to get into the meat of the story but worth it in the end

Sycamore Row. Superb writing, keeps your interest. Grisham is one today's best, most consistent writers.

Amazing. If you’re a fan of A Time To Kill you’ll love this one!

You REALLY Can't Go Home Again. Perhaps the most interesting part of this story was the trial towards the end of the book. I've read "A Time to Kill" several times and have always considered it the best of all Grisham's books - my bookcase will attest that I've read them all. Just could not visualize the setting nor see great new depths of character. Even Jake was bland. I know writers have creative license as well, but for crying out loud, get on the grammar train!!! People are HANGED, pictures are hung. If the writer doesn't know this simple rule, smack the editor...

I loved this book!. Mr. Grisham always keeps me looking forward to picking up his books again! Thank you!

Great read. This was a great book. I love the Jake Brigance series.

W. Even though it is not working I want a aWYSFESdy trWtwe has a

Sycamore Row. This is my second time reading Sycamore Row. The good thing about getting old is you forget how books ended so it’s fun to read the exceptional ones over again. Great writing, great storytelling.

Sycamore Row. Excellent read!! I could not put this book down!! Totally worth it!!!

Sycamore Row. Just read for the second time, having read it when it was first published. Enjoyed just as much the second time. The character of Jake and the other characters from A Time To Kill come alive again and the book holds you in its palm throughout. Great read, easy flow, easy to picture the town and countryside and the southern culture then.

Grisham’s Sycamore Row. Well done . Easy reading , told as only he can. Recommend to all .

Good book!. A lot of highs and lows for me. The end was sort of expected. I started to lose interest, a lot of irrelevant information.. Overall, it was okay!

Awsome. Great Read! John does it again couldn't put it down. Total page turner from beginning to end! :-)

Exceptional!. Another hit!

Wow. Loved it! I'm a big fan of JG books. My favourite and the most disturbing was A Time To Kill. John's stories touch on a lot of controversy , truth and fairness. You can identify with his characters . Thanks for such a great read. This I'd my 1st iPad book purchase Anne

Sycamore Row. Very good

Bland. Grisham's winning formula has two key elements that serve to make otherwise boring legal dramas entertaining: Compelling subject matter (A Time to Kill) and dry humour (The Rainmaker). This book has neither. If you're a devotee you might enjoy it just because it's Grisham but judged at face value this book is a complete bore.
