Description in Spanish:

"&¿Quién piensa en abogados? Grisham no, desde luego, al menos en esta cautivadora novela. Aquí, en lugar de abogados, encontramos sufridos granjeros, jornaleros miserables y un niño que va creciendo a lo largo de un libro tan rico en incidentes y conflictos como es habitual en Grisham, y más dotado de matices que nunca... Unos personajes inolvidables, un estilo más limpio y poderoso que en ninguna novela anterior, y una impresionante evocación de un tiempo y de un lugar que convierten esta historia en un clásico americano."& Publisher’&s Weekly
