Product description

Review

"The Kitchen House combines a history lesson with a compulsively readable melodrama.'--Alice Walker "Wilmington Star-News"

"[A] pulse-quickening debut."--Alice Walker "Kirkus Reviews"

"[Grissom's] . . . debut twists the conventions of the antebellum novel. . . . Provides a trove of tension and grit, while the many nefarious doings will keep readers hooked to the twisted, yet hopeful, conclusion."--Alice Walker "Publishers Weekly"

"A gripping tale of the South during the days of slavery. . . . Kathleen Grissom's first novel explores the well-known side of the dark world of slavery as well as the not-so-well-known world of white slavery, or indentured servitude. The book is written in a manner that is fast-paced and action packed, making it difficult to put down."--Alice Walker "Bookreporter.com"

"A touching tale of oppressed women, black and white . . . [This novel] about love, survival, friendship, and loss in the antebellum South should not be missed."--Alice Walker "The Boston Globe"

"Kathleen Grissom peers into the plantation romance through the eyes of a white indentured servant inhabiting the limbo land between slavery and freedom, providing a tale that provokes new empathy for all working and longing in The Kitchen House."--Alice Randall, author of The Wind Done Gone and Rebel Yell "Bookreporter.com"

"Once you get involved in the story of Lavinia and Belle you will not want to put this book down. I enjoyed this book very much and I highly recommend it. Don't read it too fast. You don't want to miss one morsel of this book."--Alice Randall, author of The Wind Done Gone and Rebel Yell "bookaholicmom.blogspot.com"

"Out of the ordinary."--Alice Walker "Romantic Times Book Review"

"Tension lurks everywhere, propelling the story forward [and] ample amounts of drama . . . Captivates with its message of right and wrong, family, and hope."--Alice Walker "Sacramento/San Francisco Book Review"

"The endearing characters ingratiate themselves in your heart. . . . I most definitely recommend this book."--Alice Randall, author of The Wind Done Gone and Rebel Yell "historical-fiction.com"
