I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. First my husband read it and recommended it to me. He knows what I like to read. I like historical fiction that is true to its era and a book that has some sadness and some family love. A PAINTED HOUSE has it all. I even saw the movie first and still loved this book. I'm glad I own a copy.

"Review" by , "This is the kind of book you read slowly because you don't want it to end."
"Synopsis" by , America's most riveting storyteller takes readers along as seven-year-old Luke Chandler journeys from innocence to experience. In 1952, Luke's family rents a cotton farm in the Arkansas Delta. Suddenly mysteries are flooding Luke's world, and he is unprepared to keep those secrets that not only threaten the crop, but will change the lives of the Chandlers forever.
"Synopsis" by , Until that September of 1952, Luke Chandler had never kept a secret or told a single lie. But in the long, hot summer of his seventh year, two groups of migrant workers — and two very dangerous men — came through the Arkansas Delta to work the Chandler cotton farm. And suddenly mysteries are flooding Lukes world.

A brutal murder leaves the town seething in gossip and suspicion. A beautiful young woman ignites forbidden passions. A fatherless baby is born ... and someone has begun furtively painting the bare clapboards of the Chandler farmhouse, slowly, painstakingly, bathing the run-down structure in gleaming white. And as young Luke watches the world around him, he unravels secrets that could shatter lives — and change his family and his town forever....
