Summary
  • In this novel the author takes you back to where it all began in A Time to Kill. Now we return to that famous courthouse in Clanton as Jake Brigance once again finds himself embroiled in a fiercely controversial trial; a trial that will expose old racial tensions and force Ford County to confront its tortured history. Seth Hubbard is a wealthy man dying of lung cancer. He trusts no one. Before he hangs himself from a sycamore tree, Hubbard leaves a new, handwritten, will. It is an act that drags his adult children, his black maid, and Jake into a conflict as riveting and dramatic as the murder trial that made Brigance one of Ford County's most notorious citizens, just three years earlier. The second will raises far more questions than it answers. Why would Hubbard leave nearly all of his fortune to his maid? Had chemotherapy and painkillers affected his ability to think clearly? And what does it all have to do with a piece of land once known as Sycamore Row? -- From book jacket
  • "Seth Hubbard está muriéndose de cáncer y ha decidido acabar con su vida. Es un hombre rico que no se fía de nadie, ni siquiera de su propia familia. Antes de ahorcarse en un árbol, escribe a mano un nuevo testamento, aunque sabe muy bien que esté escrito provocará una lucha encarnizada entre sus hijos y su sirvienta negra, la heredera principal. Jake Brigance es el abogado que recibirá este testamento por correo y que tendrá que defender la última voluntad de Hubbard. ¿Por qué decidió Seth dejar su gran fortuna a su sirvienta? ¿Estaba en su sano juicio después de los largos tratamientos de quimioterapia y de la ingestión continua de fuertes analgésicos? En La herencia, John Grisham nos transporta otra vez al mundo de Clanton, aquel pueblo sureño de su primera novela, Tiempo de matar. Han pasado tres años desde que Jake Brigance, el joven abogado blanco, se encargó de la defensa del padre de una niña negra violada que se había tomado la justicia por su mano. De nuevo, los ricos y los pobres, los blancos y los negros, toman partido y dividen el pueblo."-- P. [4] of cover
