Book Review: The Kitchen House
It was a good story. A story that needed to be told, but I've got to say due to the heavy subject matter it was rough to get through. My heart was aching for what women had to go through. My gratitude heightened for living in the time that I do. It was well written. When I discovered how much research the author put into this story I appreciated it all the more. She lived in the place she wrote about, conducting interviews with the ancestors of slaves and tried her best to immerse herself in what use to be. I'm glad I read it, however I had to make my next book as light and funny as possible to recover from it.
