The Kitchen House: A Novel | Kathleen Grissom
Now available in hardcover for the first timein this gripping New York Times bestseller and book club favorite, Kathleen Grissom brings to life a thriving plantation in Virginia in the decades before the Civil War, where a dark secret threatens to expose the best and worst in everyone tied to the estate.Orphaned during her passage from Ireland, young, white Lavinia arrives on the steps of the kitchen house and is placed, as an indentured servant, under the care of Belle, the masters illegitimate slave daughter. Lavinia learns to cook, clean, and serve food, while guided by the quiet strength and love of her new family. In time, Lavinia is accepted into the world of the big house, caring for the masters opium-addicted wife and befriending his dangerous yet protective son. She attempts to straddle the worlds of the kitchen and big house, but her skin color will forever set her apart from Belle and the other slaves. Through the unique eyes of Lavinia and Belle, Grissoms debut novel unfolds in a heartbreaking and ultimately hopeful story of class, race, dignity, deep-buried secrets, and familial bonds.

I‘m glad I reread this before reading Glory Over Everything, since I didn‘t remember a lot of it. The story of Lavinia and her adopted family on the plantation is tragic and sometimes difficult to read.

A beautiful written story about a dark period of our country's past. An orphaned white girl is sent to be raised in the kitchen house with the slaves, one being the plantation owner's illegitimate daughter. follow Lavinia as she grows close to her new family, is sent away to be raised as a respectable white girl and ends up back at a plantation with a family of her own. There's plenty of heartbreak as you fall in love with some of the characters

I enjoyed this book. The struggle and ultimate demise of the central family was heartbreaking but right alongside is the resilience of Lavinia. I love books about the South and this one was a pleasure!!

I was determined to like this book after I read a bad review about the white author telling the story from a black slave's POV. I didn't have an issue with that so much as I did the story panning out half way through the book. It seemed melodramatic and the main character became very wishy-washy, when she was so tenacious and firm in herself to start. The book ties up neatly at the end and I will read the companion novel Glory over Everything. ⭐⭐⭐

A compelling & gritty book about life on a tobacco plantation at the turn of the 19 century. A girl orphaned during her passage to the United States from Ireland, becomes an indentured servant. Her life is heavily influenced by Belle, a slave who is the daughter of the plantation master. The girl is soon torn between the slaves, who have become her family, and the plantation owners who share her skin colour. A sad but ultimately hopeful story

I liked this book, but I struggle with books that include the point of view of slaves that are written by white authors. The story was good, and though it did discuss some horrible treatment of slaves, there were still a lot of white savior moments.

The novel gave insight into the communal living that existed during slavery. It showed how family goes beyond bloodlines and color. I enjoyed that part. However the ending was a disappointment. Some of the characters could have been developed more and would have enjoyed more description. Easy read that keeps you going.

Finally getting around to this one. I remember people raving about this book. I‘m liking it fine, but not sure I‘d rave about it. Plus, a book about slavery where one of the main POV characters is a white indentured servant? I‘m thinking that the people who were outraged over ‘Green Book‘ winning the Best Picture Oscar year would have something to say about this. I just find it strange. I‘m listening to the audiobook, which is well done.

annahenke It took awhile for me to be convinced, but I thoroughly loved it by the end. You may change your mind. 11mo

School has been kicking my butt this month, and I haven‘t had time to devote to reading beyond audiobooks. So, I‘m bailing on these two books—for now. I really want to finish them; I just can‘t right now.

I had first read the book in 2010 but I think without having the audiobook this time around, I would have glazed over much of the story this time as I did the first time. I really liked the depiction of both of the female protagonists and despite the topics that the novel depicts, I quite enjoyed it. An worthwhile read. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1/2.

wanderinglynn @GypsyKat Me too! But I‘ve recently learned about aphantasia, which is a condition where a person can‘t form mental images in their mind‘s eye. They can‘t even picture real things in their mind, like family members. And so while they may be readers, they read more non-fiction because fiction books are often not entertaining for them since they can‘t “see” or imagine the story. 2y

‘You must not become too friendly with them,‘ she said. ‘They are not the same as us.‘
‘How?‘ I asked. ‘How are they not the same?‘

When Lavinia is transported to Virginia to work in the kitchen of a plantation owner, she becomes part of the family of black slaves whose fates are tied to the plantation.

But as Lavinia grows older, she will be torn between the life that awaits her as a white woman and the people she knows as kin…
