admirable determination was able over come them.

The book starts off with Mattie's father taking in Tom Chaney under the

impression that Tom was a decent man. Little did Mattie's father know his faith in his

ability to judge one's character would lead to his unexpected demise. A couple of days

later, her father, after allowing Tom in, had to run to town to do some errands. He

thought that his new guest should come along since he could use the manpower to bring back some thing from town.

Mattie was uncomfortable with this but she trusted her father and so she let him go alone

Days later she receives word that her father had been murdered by a man that could only

be described as a man with a burn on his mouth and a rifle that belonged to him that was

wrapped around his shoulder by a cotton string.

Once Mattie heard this she automatically knew it was Tom Chaney.
