EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Gray Mountain: A Novel By John Grisham | Conversation Starters A Brief Look Inside: John Grisham’s 2014 legal thriller, Gray Mountain, focuses on the life of a pauper and society’s view of injustice. The main character, Samantha, faces the ultimate challenge and disappointment when the high-power law firm she drudgingly serves gives her only one option—work for a non-profit firm of theirs and, possibly get your prestigious job back. The victim of a law firm that loses prosperity, Samantha is desperate to keep her place among the elite. She learns a quick lesson in the importance of serving humanity first through placement with the Mountain Aid Legal Clinic. Her life looks a bit “gray” on the mountain of suffering she discovers exists in the world, which changes her entire perspective on life, including a new chance at romance. Gray Mountain was touted to be an “angry but important” novel by the Washington Post due to its focus on the coal miners’ life at Big Coal. Released in 2014, following another serious look at human suffering in Sycamore Row (2013), this novel took the number 3 slot on the New York Times bestseller list for 10 weeks.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Published in 2014, Gray Mountain is a legal thriller focusing on strip mining for coal. It is set in Appalachia, a town in eastern America. This story centers around a lawyer named Donovan Gray who is a big character in such a small town and certainly to Samantha Kofer. Samantha is new to the area from New York, and having previously worked in the capital's biggest law firm is feeling decidedly out of place. Set in the times after the Great Recession, we see third-year graduate Samantha learning on her feet in a small town that plays by its own rules. After the economy taking a nose dive, Samantha finds herself far from her former dreams of earning huge wages in New York. She is desperate to keep the benefits of her former role and has arrived at Appalachia on the promise of being taken back if the company finds itself in credit again. While working under Mattie Wyatt at the Mountain Legal Aid Clinic, she soon learns what a tough world she has entered where coal miners have little to no rights, even riddled with disease solely attributable to their working environment. This novel by John Grisham beautifully captures both the stunning scenery that the story is set in, but of the colliding worlds of face paced New York and the slow but deadly Appallachia. Donovan Gray is the nephew of Mattie Wyatt and is on a mission to tackle the big bosses of the strip coal mining world. In doing so, John Grisham enlightens us to the dangers of this world and the damage it is doing to both the environment and the people working in it. Highlighting the extremity of the work, Donovan takes on a heartbreaking case where an upended boulder rolls down and flattens a worker's house, killing his two boys inside. The story then hones in on the proceeding court case and Donovan seeking justice asking for a settlement. Samantha meanwhile is involved in a love interest, and also abused by men in the town. * A highly researched book that was written with assistance from Mary Cromer, an attorney for Appalachian Citizen Law Center. *Written by the Mississippi born John Grisham who has seen many of his books become on-screen portrayals. *Worldwide best seller in the thriller field. *Takes an insightful look into the contrasts of city life, exploring the impact of the Great Recession and also the terrible working conditions of those working in coal mining. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 10.0px 0.0px; font: 15.0px Arial; color: #555555; -webkit-text-stroke: #555555} span.s1 {font-kerning: none; background-color: #ffffff} span.s2 {font-kerning: none}

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The horror was in the waiting the unknown, the insomnia, the ulcers. Co-workersignored each other and hid behind locked doors. Secretaries and paralegals passed along the rumors and refused eye contact. Everyone was on edge, wondering, 'Who might be next?' The partners, the big boys, appeared shell-shocked and wanted no contact with their underlings. They might soon be ordered to slaughter them. The gossip was brutal. Ten associates in Litigation terminated; partially true only seven. The entire Estate division closed, partners and all; true. Eight partners in Antitrust jumping to another firm; false, for now. The atmosphere was so toxic that Samantha left the building whenever possible and worked with her laptop in coffee shops around lower Manhattan. She sat on a park bench one pleasant day day ten after the fall of Lehman Brothers and gazed at the tall building down the street. It was called 110 Broad, and the top half was leased by Scully & Pershing, the biggest law firm the world had ever seen. Her firm, for now, though the future was anything but certain. Two thousand lawyers in twenty countries, half of them in New York City alone, a thousand right up there packed together on floors 30 through 65. How many wanted to jump? She couldn't guess, but she wasn't the only one. The world's largest firm was shrinking in chaos, as were its competitors. Big Law, as it was known, was just as panicked as the hedge funds, investment banks, real banks, insurance conglomerates, Washington, and on down the food chain to the merchants on Main Street.
