Gray Mountain


The year is 2008 and Samantha Kofer's career at a huge Wall Street law firm is on the fast track--until the recession hits and she is downsized, furloughed, and escorted out of the building. Samantha, though, is offered an opportunity to work at a legal aid clinic for one year without pay, all for a slim chance of getting rehired. In a matter of days Samantha moves from Manhattan to Brady, Virginia, population 2,200, in the heart of Appalachia, a part of the world she has only read about. Samantha's new job takes her into the murky and dangerous world of coal mining, where laws are often broken, communities are divided, and the land itself is under attack. But some of the locals aren't so thrilled to have a big-city lawyer in town, and within weeks Samantha is engulfed in litigation that turns deadly. Because like most small towns, Brady harbors big secrets that some will kill to conceal"--Unedited summary from the book.

Gray Mountain A Novel By John Grisham Conversation Starters


Gray Mountain: A Novel By John Grisham | Conversation Starters A Brief Look Inside: John Grisham’s 2014 legal thriller, Gray Mountain, focuses on the life of a pauper and society’s view of injustice. The main character, Samantha, faces the ultimate challenge and disappointment when the high-power law firm she drudgingly serves gives her only one option—work for a non-profit firm of theirs and, possibly get your prestigious job back. The victim of a law firm that loses prosperity, Samantha is desperate to keep her place among the elite. She learns a quick lesson in the importance of serving humanity first through placement with the Mountain Aid Legal Clinic. Her life looks a bit “gray” on the mountain of suffering she discovers exists in the world, which changes her entire perspective on life, including a new chance at romance. Gray Mountain was touted to be an “angry but important” novel by the Washington Post due to its focus on the coal miners’ life at Big Coal.
