A Time to Kill

This month we went with a blast from the past.  Most of us have already read Grisham's "A Time to Kill", however, this throwback proved to be as emotional this time around as it had been all those years ago.

"A Time to Kill",  is a classic Grisham book featuring a racially fuelled injustice, the south and the legal system.  The book starts with a graphic and heinous crime against a young black child and her father's instinctual reaction.  Those of us who are parents know the lengths to which we would go to to avenge any crime against our children, so the question is, how far is too far?

The racial injustice central to the plot of this book, mirrors many events we see today.  The crime and subsequent journey through the judicial system has made a significant impact on us all.

"A Time to Kill", was a good read.  John Grisham's writing style enabled us to easily relate to the characters, the emotion and the story line.  As readers, we were hoping for justice, and were not disappointed.

In 2010, our book club, Women Wine and Word, started out as a brilliant idea from one of our members (we call her the queen). We meet once a month to discuss our books, eat some food, drink a little wine, and have a great time with our friends.

We invite you to check out our monthly blogs, browse through our reading list, or take a peek at our book reviews (FYI- only a few books have received 5/5 wine glasses).
