Along the way they make terrible sacrifices, face impossible choices, and confront a devastating, life-changing secret, but through it all the two heroines of this astounding new novel hold fast to who they are�Shanghai girls.

"Cutting for Stone" by Abraham Verghese. Favorite book of 2011.
Cutting for Stone.. book club read for this year I think.
Cutting for Stone-on my "to read" list.
A wonderful piece of historical fiction by a first-time author. She writes through the eyes of two narrators, one a young Irish girl, an indentured servant, and the other, a young female slave, on a plantation in Virginia at the turn of the 18th century. I loved the book and it's characters that live on after the book is closed.

The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom...add to my "to read" list.
Lavinia, a seven-year-old Irish orphan with no memory of her past, arrives on a tobacco plantation where she is put to work as an indentured servant. Placed with the slaves in the kitchen house under the care of Belle, the master’s illegitimate daughter, Lavinia becomes deeply bonded to her new adopted family, even though she is forever set apart from them by her white skin. As Lavinia is slowly accepted into the world of the big house, where the master is absent and the mistress battles an opium addiction, she finds herself perilously straddling two very different worlds. When Lavinia marries the master’s troubled son and takes on the role of mistress, loyalties are brought into question, dangerous truths are laid bare and lives are put at risk. The Kitchen House is a tragic story of page-turning suspense, exploring the meaning of family, where love and loyalty prevail..

Great book club book
A debut novel of uncommon skill, Kathleen Grissom’s The Kitchen House is a beautifully written, emotionally wrenching coming-of-age story—set on a Virginia plantation during the late 18th century—that sheds new perspective on an often forgotten part of our history. It is 1790, and Lavinia, a 7-year-old girl, has just come off a ship from Ireland with no parents and no memory of her past. Taken to a tobacco plantation, she’s quickly put to work as an indentured servant, living with the kitchen house slaves under the care of Belle, the master’s illegitimate daughter. Soon, Lavinia becomes deeply bonded with her new family, even though she realizes that she’s forever set apart by her white skin. But as time passes and she slowly gains acceptance into the big house, she finds herself caught in uncharted territory, straddling two very different worlds that neither trust nor understand the other. Marrying the master’s troubled son—and taking on the role of mistress—only makes things worse. Now, as her two worlds collide, long-standing loyalties are torn, hidden truths are laid bare and a shocking act of violence forever changes the deceptive peace of the plantation.
Oh my goodness. Have you read Kathleen Grissom's The Kitchen House? If not, go quickly and buy it, borrow it, or take it off your TBR pile. I wish I had another book guaranteed this good to anticipate! The Kitchen House is the story of Lavinia, a little Irish immigrant orphan who becomes an indentured servant on a Virginia plantation, and the family that raises her—and the family that owns her. What Lavinia doesn't understand is that she is white and her adopted family is the property of the master: the slaves of the big house. As she grows into womanhood, she is forced to acknowledge that she is a white girl, and her family is black. What she refuses to deny, however, is that they are, indeed, her family. She has to learn to carefully straddle the two worlds, to protect those she loves, and to simply survive a brutal introduction into adulthood. I know. It sounds like a "been there, done that" kind of novel. The plot line I've given merely scratches the surface. There is nothing sentimental or trite about this novel. Grissom is a master storyteller. Told from the perspectives of both Lavinia as well as Belle, her adoptive mother who is the master's illegitimate daughter, the novel is fast-paced, beautifully written, and absolutely compelling. In an interview, author Grissom hints that she may be writing more on some of the characters in this novel. I can only hope! Linked up on Semicolon's Saturday Review of Books

The Kindle can't replace the feeling of holding a real book, but it's great for traveling.... Love my Kindle Fire!
Amazon Kindle Keyboard. I love my iPhone, ask any of my friends who have tried to separate us but once in a moment I like to give her a rest and read on a Kindle. I love that I can get lost in the reading as with a book. The eInk simulates that ink on paper experience just fine. Not to mention you can fit several hundred books and get free data for light surfing. Talk about super books!

A recent conversation with a traveling friend got me thinking. What are the things I just can’t live without while on a trip? Are those things different when I’m traveling for business vs. fun? What do I need for the plane vs. the hotel, or clothes vs. toiletries? So after much deliberation and consideration, I…

Great book. It is classified as young adult but I read it and by far it is one of my favorite books I have ever read.
The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak. One of my all time favorite books I have EVER read. Liesel is a girl sent to live with a married couple around the time of WWII. She is a German girl who finds herself hiding a Jew in her house. She finds happiness by stealing books.
Just finished this book today. Narrated by Death, this book tells the story of a young girl in Nazi Germany. Amazing book
"The Book Thief" Markus Zusak. Fiction. The book is set in Nazi, Germany. It describes a young girl's relationship with foster parents, the other resident's of their neighborhood, and a Jewish fist-fighter who hides in her home during WWII. New York Bestseller List (2006) for over 230 weeks. One of my favorite books because it is so well-written.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. Everyone should read this book. It is beautifully narrated by an unlikely sympathetic character. Set in war torn Germany, it is the story of a young girl, the book thief, and those who love her.........MY ALL TIME FAVORITE BOOK
The Book Thief Read July 2014 for Breadalbane book club. WWII from a different perspective. What is Death haunted by? Death the narrator tells the story of a young German girl who's family hid a Jew. She is one of the people left behind that haunts him.

Oh, my goodness. I have been reading and hearing about The Book Thief by Markus Zusak for a long time, but I've just now finally read it myself. To be perfectly honest, I picked up my copy over a year ago at the used bookstore in my library and even though I had heard how wonderful it was, I wasn't in a hurry to read it. I have so many books on my "To Read..." list that I have to pick what sounds good that day and a book about the holocaust didn't exactly sound like a fun read. However, when it was my turn to host book club, I went with this one. (Everyone loved it!) And I was right, a book about a young girl's perspective of the holocaust in 1940s Germany wasn't what I would call fun, but it was brilliant. Zusak is an extraordinary author and The Book Thief is beautifully written. The haunting imagery he uses brings the reader right in to the story and the characters are so well developed they feel like friends. Even Death, the narrator of this enthralling novel, seems more like a companion and advocate than the evil Grim Reaper so often envisioned. I think the most shocking thing about this book, for me anyway, was that it wasn't pure fiction. How could this have really happened? I have a simple understanding of the holocaust that probably most publicly educated Americans have. I've read about it, I've seen documentaries (though I admit I skipped Schindler's List because I didn't want those images in my head), but through this book, my eyes have been opened to so much more. It is easy to lump all Germans at that time into the Nazi box, but I now see that there were many Germans who were not in agreement with Hitler and his ideas. The fear was so strong that it was difficult for most people to stand and fight. It is possible that they never knew that the people standing on either side of them wanted to fight, too. Of course, the next logical question to me is this: What can we do to make sure nothing like it ever happens again? We must be involved with and aware of the world around us. We must speak up. We must help those in need and never turn our backs. And now, I must get off my soap box and go read something lighter. This was a wonderful book and one I really believe everyone should read. Have you read it? Tell me what you thought.
