This book was so disappointing. There didn't seem to be much originality in the story or the characters. Aside from the readers, there was no comparison to The Help which was the best audiobook I've ever listened to.
This book was fabulous! I loved it! I couldn't wait to get back to listening to it. The narrators were great and the story itself made you feel as though you were there. I hated to have it end!
I was so into this story, characters, and their circumstances that once I finished it I reread it immediately. I would read more of Kathleen Grissom but this is the only title I found.
I absolutely loved this story. The narration was fantastic. I was unable to stop listening.
I listened to The Kitchen House after I had listened to The Help. This book is equally as interesting as the The Help and the performance was wonderful!
great story , well read hard to stop listening! The characters are well developed. The story also shed some light on a less know part of American history.
This book was a great story about a time in American History that Americans would like to hide under the rug. I found reasons to drive my car just to listen and was sad when it was over. The narrators brought each character to life. My only negative comment is that the ending appeared rushed and maybe should have been left more open leaving opportunity for a second book.
This is only the second book that I have listened to since joining audible a month ago. My first was the "The Help" by Katherine Sockett. I loved the narrators of "The Help" so much that I looked for other books narrated by them. I came across "The Kitchen House" and was blown away. I've just finished listening and can't seem to get the characters off my mind. At first I thought it started out slow, but as I got 1/3 of the way thru I could not stop listening. I've decided to listen to it again to catch things that I may have missed. The characters are so well developed and the story is heartwarming. I think I've enjoyed it better than "The Help".
