A painted house, I believe so, but not the other one.
I must now go on a hunt to find it, and I believe I know just the place!
Thanks for providing me with future reading material.
I'm having currently withdrawal because I'm out of decent hp fanfic lol.

| Hi, ONJ,
| We all know that Grisham's books deal with lawyers and their potpourri of
| experiences.  But have you read "Skipping Christmas" and "A Painted 
House"?
| He traveled another road for these two, but Lynne and I loved them just 
the
| same.
