BookLender review by Donna on 2012-11-11 02:31:25

This book was compared to The Help, but other than about life in the Civil Rights era, The Help didnt have half the impact that The Kitchen House had. I read The Help and I really loved the book, but this book not only left a deep impression if not much more accurate impression than any other book on the subject, it left me feeling as if I was there. I wasnt just reading a story, but a silent observer of the everyday life of all the characters. I couldnt put it down. If this was Grissoms first book I cant wait for her next book.
