Review: The Kitchen House

User Review  - Robyn Porter - Goodreads

I was so disappointed in this book! On the surface it is a 'clean' read-- no profanity or sex scenes-- but rape, incest, child molesting, and adultery drove the plot. The horrors of slavery would have ... Read full review

User Review  - Katerobinson - Goodreads

From the start, I did not like this book. I felt it was melodramatic and at first with the switching between time frames and characters, I had a hard time figuring it out who was who. Once I had that ... Read full review

User Review  - Queen Cole - Goodreads

I just reread this book and disliked it just as much the second time around. This author repeats phrases too often such as "I could tell by her tone" and "using her technique to change the topic." Her ... Read full review
