“Salem Falls tells the story of a man who is trying to outrun his past but is caught up in a modern-day witch hunt.”
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
Again this is another Courtroom drama from Picoult, a subject as a writer she seems so familiar with.
Salem Falls follows the story of Jack St Bride, a teacher, wrongly accused of raping a girl. He has served a prison sentence and moves to Salem Falls upon his release. Eventually he finds work in a diner, working for a lady called Addie.
Just as he is beginning to form a relationship with Addie, Jack St Bride is again accused of sexual assault. His defence attorney Jordan, is brought in to make sure that he is not convicted of the same offence again.
