    The Kitchen House: A Novel - Bookclub book and I am loving it!

  • Silver's Reviews

    THE KITCHEN HOUSE by Kathleen Grissom. Historical Fiction, plantations A lot of tragedies throughout the story, a terrific account of occurrences, excellent depictions of the surroundings and people. Through the author's wonderful descriptions, you feel you are right there......the novel is fabulously written. If you loved THE HELP, you will love this book as well or you may like it even more.

Elise is the daughter of Anna, a gifted opera singer, and Julian, an author. She grows up as a bourgeois, Jewish girl in Vienna during WWII. To escape the Nazis, Elise becomes a maid in England. This is a tale of hope and love despite utter devastation and loss.

A heartfelt fictional story of a woman who loses the last 10 years of her memory...including the birth of her 3 kids. Such a touching book. Reminder that you have to let yourself be flawed and not 100% perfect all of the time, especially as a mother.

The Paris Wife... This was one of my book club's selections that turned out to be a delightful surprise-- I loved it! In fact, I was so taken with Ernest Hemmingway's first wife, Hadley's, account of the couple's "Paris years" that I finally read his "A Moveable Feast," which is his account of the same time. Sounds dull, but it fascinated me for some reason. Recommended!

I read this in high school, young married, and now old married and still it is one of my favorite books!

When Jack turns five, he is excited to learn more about the world around him. His world consists of Room, the place where he and Ma live. But for Ma, Room is the place where she has been held captive for the past seven years, prisoner to Old Nick. Ma is desperate to devise a plan to escape Room, and the time has come to try. Are Jack and Ma prepared to meet the changed world outside of Room?

The Forgotten Garden: A Novel. I loved this book. A little girl who ends up alone on a dock is raised by the dockmaster and his wife. The story follows her life as she tries to figure out where she came from.

I love all of Kate Morton's novels but this one is my favorite. She writes mystery novels that rely heavily on flashing forward and back in time in the UK. They are all slightly Gothic, painstakingly plotted, and romantic to some degree. I highly recommend them to Anglophiles and mystery/romance lovers everywhere.

What should you read next?

Me Before You: A Novel by Jojo Moyes -- one of the most heart-breaking, compelling, and thought-provoking books I've read in a long time. Very well-written and hard to put down. Caveat: This book is not written from a Christian perspective, has quite a bit of language, and the plot line deals with suicide in a very raw form. I didn't agree with the outcome of the book, but it made me dig deep and think hard... and books that do that are ones I feel are very worth my time.

Read This is about how deep the books are in my living room right now. I need more bookcases.
