In this kaleidoscopic book spanning three decades of American life, Robert Wheelock falls in love with his beautiful cousin and takes on his first clients as a lawyer with his own practice. He fights a series of bitter skirmishes with his stepmother, suffers personal tragedy and loss, and starts down the path of public life and civic duty first blazed by the judge. And then Robert commits an indiscretion that will haunt him for twenty years-an indiscretion that will jeopardize his marriage and his place in the community. The Judge's Daughter is the story of a man's conscience and his capacity for love, set in a time and place that will never exist again, but that will live forever in the American imagination.

THE JUDGE'S DAUGHTER is one of those rare stories -- strongly and intricately plotted and full of fascinating characters who come vividly to life. Thomas takes readers on a fascinating journey through the seasons and history of a town, a family, and, ultimately, one man and his marriage. This book is a delight, written in a style that blends crisp, perfectly crafted dialogue with lyrical, often haunting description. Highly Recommended!Was this review helpful?
