August Book Club Pick

It's book club time again...on to our next book!!
I''m looking forward to reading this delves into the 1700's and slavery...very different from the other 3 books!

Here is a sneek into the book...
In 1790, 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 with the kitchen house slaves. Though she becomes deeply bonded to her new family, Lavinia is also slowly accepted into the world of the big house, where the master is absent and the mistress battles opium addiction. As time passes she finds herself perilously straddling two very different worlds and when loyalties are brought into question, dangerous truths are laid bare and lives are at risk. The Kitchen House is a tragic story of page-turning suspense, exploring the meaning of family, where love and loyalty prevail

Can't wait to start! HaPpY ReAdInG!!!!

In other news, yes we are back from our little San Antonio trip...I'm taking it easy today...laundry, picking up the house, running a few errands, grocery shopping later and yes sorting through all the pics for a trip post later!
