I expected more from you Grisham – Gray Mountain, a review

Book Reviews, Book Thoughts, Writing, Writing Thoughts


In the midst of the financial Samantha finds herself kicked out of one of the biggest legal firms in the world, and sent to make her own way in a non-profits organisation. She finds her way to Appalachia, where her new colleagues help people who have no money – and where the intriguing Donovan is chasing the mining companies who are ruining the landscape and killing people with their greed and negligence. She is reluctantly drawn into the battles, never quite sure if she misses her desk job or not…

Now, this was a good book. The journey of Samantha was pretty compelling, the topics covered, from city girl in the country to the mining controversy, her relationships to the practice of law, were interesting. But from Grisham, I found myself expecting something more than this.
