The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom

Product Details This was recommended by someone in my favorite Facebook group.  I love getting recommendations from fellow book lovers, so I picked this one up quickly.   I am so glad I did!

I absolutely loved this book!  I loved  everything about it!  It starts off with a bang and then goes back in time.  This is the story of Lavinia, a white indentured servant being raised by slaves on a plantation in Virginia prior to the Civil War.

The characters are all so real and very well developed.  I loved them all - from Mama Mae and Papa George to Miss Martha.   This story was brilliant in it's breadth and scope and tells quite the tale about this time in American History.    It's reminiscent of Uncle Tom's Cabin but not quite....

If you enjoy historical fiction, this book is a must.   I gave it 5 out of 5 stars.
