"Moments after Lisbeth is born, she's taken from her mother and handed over to an enslaved wet nurse, Mattie, a young mother separated from her own infant son in order to care for her tiny charge. Thus begins an intense relationship that will shape both of their lives for decades to come. Though Lisbeth leads a life of privilege, she finds nothing but loneliness in the company of her overwhelmed mother and her distant, slave-owning father. As she grows older, Mattie becomes more like family to Lisbeth than her own kin, and the girl's visits to the slaves' quarters--and their lively and loving community she finds there --bring the two closer together than ever. But can two women in such disparate circumstances form a bond like theirs without consequence? This deeply moving tale of unlikely love traces the journey of these very different women as each searches for freedom and dignity" -- Page 4 of cover.… (mais)

    The Kitchen House por Kathleen Grissom (susiesharp)
    susiesharp: this is also a tale of the south and slavery but this one is not as depressing as The Kitchen House but has a similar feel.

Elizabeth Wainwright is born at Fair Oaks in Virginia. She is provided with a wet nurse from the slaves that her family owns. Her name is Mattie and, unfortunately, has a 3 month old of her own.
Mattie and Lisbeth (Elizabeth) form a very strong bond as Lisbeth is growing up. Mattie learns that her husband and her young son have run from the plantation and Mattie does not know if they are safe or not. Mattie soon finds that she is pregnant with a second child and Lisbeth helps her with a name for that child, Jordan.
There is much affection between these two and their lives take separate turns. ( )

Enjoyable story

Endearing characters, so glad she was able to escape and have the life she wanted, looking forward to book two. ( )

This book is a heartwarming story about the daughter of a slave holding family in the South and one of the slaves in her household who nurses her from infancy. It was a very fast, very easy, enjoyable read, but I definitely felt like I was reading a book aimed at young adults (even though it isn't marketed that way). It's written very simplistically, and oddly, for a story about slavery, everything seems to end on a positive note. In some ways, that was refreshing, but it also seemed a little odd and unrealistic for a book about slavery to be so "happily ever after". Nonetheless, the storytelling was good, it had some good moral lessons, and I never felt like putting the book down, so I think it deserves more than three stars.

I think I'd likely give it 3.5 stars if it hadn't been for the narrator. She did a wonderful job of bringing the story to life.

I was engaged throughout most of the book but there were some scenes that seemed to be a bit heavy on details that did nothing to enhance the story or move it forward. There were also plenty of parts where I had wished more time had been spent giving us some of the feelings of the characters - some very important things that were just glossed over and not really brought up again.

But I still enjoyed the overall package a lot so that's why I went with four stars instead of three and a half. ( )
