  1. 1. A Painted House by John Grisham

    This novel is set in the late 1950s in rural Arkansas and narrated through the eyes of a seven-year-old boy living with his family on a cotton farm. Over the course of a harvest season, the boy witnesses a series of events that shatter his innocence, including family secrets, social class struggles, and racial tensions. The arrival of migrant workers and a group of hill people to help with the cotton picking introduces him to a world much larger and more complex than he had previously known. The narrative captures the boy's coming-of-age experience amidst the backdrop of hard work, family dynamics, and the harsh realities of farm life, painting a vivid picture of a bygone era in American history.
