    Story
    (10)

    In a multidimensional, intricately wrought narrative, Myla Goldberg leads us back to Boston in the early part of the twentieth century and into two completely captivating worlds. One is that of Lydia, an Irish-American shopgirl with bigger aspirations than your average young woman from South Boston.

    I think this book has an interesting storyline but it got confusing to listen to it. There wasn't enough information to let you know "when" each chapter was taking place. I got a little bored with it and feel I missed the sense of the plot and where she was intending to go with it...and it's un-abridged!

    Orphaned while onboard ship from Ireland, seven-year-old Lavinia arrives on the steps of a tobacco plantation where she is to live and work with the slaves of the kitchen house. Under the care of Belle, the master's illegitimate daughter, Lavinia becomes deeply bonded to her adopted family, though she is set apart from them by her white skin. Eventually, Lavinia is accepted into the world of the big house, where the master is absent and the mistress battles opium addiction.

    If you could take any character from The Kitchen House out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Belle and Mama Mae -they have such strength and were willing to sacrifice for others


    Any additional comments?

    Absolutely loved this book! Am going to recommend it for our book club because I want the chance to discuss the many issues and themes in the book. I especially enjoyed the extra from the author at the end explaining how the story presented itself to her. Having the different voices helped the story along and added to the emotion of the events.

    With grown-up words like "cooperate", "respect", "patience", and "considerate", a big, boisterous and zany family celebrates the power of language and discovers that words - big or little - are the bridge that connects us all.
