The only other John Grisham book I've read is Calico Joe (which I loved). I really enjoyed this book. New York City lawyer is sent to intern in a Legal Aid office in Coal Miner country. Her eyes are opened to people who need lawyers who are suffering because of big coal companies. Mr. Grisham includes ALOT of background info on coal mining, which I appreciate. The story was good, the characters were good, the plot was good. Overall, a good book.
