The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom {Book Club Selection}

I have recently started reading The Kitchen House by fellow Canadian, Kathleen Grissom; it is our book club selection for the month of June.

I have not yet finished reading it, but I can tell you this; I have it on my Kobo Arc and the first time I picked it up I read 40% of the book!  I can barely wait to finish it, so far I have found it to be a fast-paced, heart stopping,  thought-provoking look at life on a tobacco plantation in the 1700’s.

  1. I did read this book a couple of years ago. I read it with my book club, and I remember it invoking a lot of discussion, which is what you hope a book will do. I think we read it shortly after reading The Help, which was our favorite book of the year. Enjoy!

  2. Just finished it last night(bought it on Tuesday)! One of the best novels I have read in quite a while. Totally agree with you. Would love to see a movie version….. or maybe not!

  3. I don’t read a lot of books but my mom does. I’ll have to recommend this one to her.
