I really loved the way this author wrote this book. There was enough going on to make it hard to put the book aside.
My daughter recommended this book (she had gotten the book from the library) "Can't put it down" was her statement. Well, let me tell you she was correct. From the first chapter of the book ( I have it on audio) I could not take my headphones off! I was frustrated whenever I would have to put my ipod on charge for a bit and couldn't wait to get back to it. The characters are likeable ... if a bit folksey and not always totally believeable.... the story line is a bit predictable in places but not completely. The author gives a few surprises here and there. All in all a great listen....the narrators are wonderful and the characters voices are easy to identify and the accents are very accurate and quite believeable. I enjoyed it so much and I can't wait for something more from this author!!
This is a fantastic book, and well worth the time. The characters are wonderful and engaging, and it's easy to feel their pains and joys throughout. The author's afterword is very interesting and well worth sticking around to hear. I highly recommend this book!
I love audio books. As I spend hours a day driving they keeps me going. Thank you great performers and delightful writers.
I loved this book. Was hard to read at times due to tears, but I could not stop.
The KITCHEN HOUSE was captivating while it was wrenching. This is historical fiction that teaches while keeping you riveted to the characters, good and evil. Listen the first time for the character development and again for Antebellum culture and what it means to be a family.
I loved the characters in this beautiful and heartbreaking story. I was sad when it ended because I cared so much about the everyone in the story. Well worth your time and attention.
This was a very good historical novel and the narration was excellent. I thought Grissom really grappled effectively with the destructive influence of slavery and its impact in disrupting families. The book is intense in parts and very disturbing. It was a riviting listen.
