Listen to this – The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom

Kitchen HouseIf you liked The Help, you may want to try The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom. It is novel of historical fiction which takes place in Virginia in the pre-civil war era. This book is available only as a digital audio book which is perfect because the best way to experience this story is to listen to it. Told in diary form by different characters, we hear the rich dialect of the southern slaves and the sweet Irish accent of Lavinia – a child at the beginning of the story whose life we follow for roughly 20 years. The excellent readers bring the story and the characters to life and more than make up for a weaker plot in the second half of the book. If you have been thinking of trying an audio book this would be a great place to start because the audio really enhances the story and makes it a great choice. Download book here
