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....

This is a great book but it is very different from other John Grisham books in that it has nothing to do with the law, courtrooms, judges, lawyers, etc.  I enjoy traditional Grisham books and enjoyed this book.  It's a quick read and not very long.  Baseball and cotton picking are dominate themes but you don't have to know anything about either topic to enjoy the novel.

Really liked the book.  Very different from what John Grisham normally writes.  I would definitely recommend it for reading.
