Grissom also takes care in describing the home life of the slaves and white family on the plantation. The lives of the slaves center around their roles in the kitchen house and the big house. There is little political detail, but she explains that the plantation is in Southern Virginia, far from any cities. I do wish there was more historical detail throughout the book, but that’s just my preference with a historical novel.
New York Times bestselling author Kathleen Grissom was the keynote speaker at the Navigating Your Writing Life conference in Charlottesville, VA. She told the fascinating story behind the story of her novel, The Kitchen House. She quickly jotted down the scene (which ended up as the prologue to The Kitchen House ) and slipped the papers into a drawer. Sometime later, her father told her a story about a white Irish girl who came to the US by ship with her parents and brothers. Her parents died during the journey, the boys survived, but no one knows what happened to the little girl. His response is priceless: Abinia, he said, pointing toward the chickens, you look at those birds.

The Kitchen House book. I must say this is the first audiobook that I have thoroughly enjoyed and was captivated from start to finish. THE KITCHEN HOUSE by KATHLEEN GRISSOM is a very touching, powerful, gripping, heart-wrenching, and a beautifully written Historical Fiction novel which is set on a plantation in the antebellum South that grabbed my listening ears right from the very first chapter. The novel was told in alternating perspectives of Lavinia and Belle with a different narrator for each voice.
