READ THIS! {Updates & Reviews}

Are you reading along with this month's READ THIS! novel, The Kitchen House, by Kathleen Grissom?

I dove into this novel headfirst, and Grissom pulled me into this story with each turn of the page. I will give you my full review at the end of the month, but first, I want to take a break from our {simply thanksgiving} series to show you a few reviews of The Kitchen House.

Robert Morgan, author of Gap Creek, says, "You will be thrilled by this intimate and surprising story that connects us with an unexpected corner of our history. Kathleen Grissom gives us a new and unforgettable perspective on slavery and families and human ties in the Old South, exploring the deepest mysteries of the past that help define who we are to this day."

Alice Randall, author of Rebel Yell, says, "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."

This novel, first published in 2010, didn't take off right away, and so Grissom reached out to well known book bloggers in order to get more attention - slowly reaching more and more people until her novel was catapulted into the popularity that it enjoys today. I am looking forward to our discussion about it in a few weeks and hope that you're all enjoying this novel as much as I did!




  1. I really liked this book! I would also recommend the House of Tyneford as it has a similar storyline...
