I have always had a soft spot when it comes to slavery stories They scream with emotion of inhumanity of savagery Yet they can also embrace with compassion and love And although I detest they happened I'm always compelled to read them and think there is a sliver of truth in all In this narrative a missing negro boy sends Burton a black man so fair skinned he has been living the life of a white man on a search back to the southern states where his freedom is threatened from a past he left behind But return he must to try and track down the boy who has suspiciously disappeared and is suspected of being enslavedThe stories cross over We meet several slaves and whites along this journey We learn of Burton and how he denied his own ancestry in order to survive in the white Man's world and the truths that threaten to emerge We learn of forgiveness and acceptanceThe words fly off the page and I was transported back to 1830 Grissom has captured my heart with these characters who have escaped slavery empowered themselves with education and cherish their freedom above everything A truly moving 45 ★

review Glory over Everything: Beyond The Kitchen House

Glory over Everything Beyond The Kitchen HouseEd years before when he was a runaway slave son of a southern black slave and her master But Jamie’s carefully constructed world is threatened when he discovers that his married socialite lover Caroline is pregnant and his beloved servant Pan to whose father Jamie owes his own freedom has been captured and sold into slavery in the South Fleeing the conseuences of his deceptions Jamie embarks on a trip to a North Carolina plantation to save Pan from the life he himself barely escaped as a boy With the help of a fearless slave Sukey who has taken the terrified young boy. ”I looked at my hands to see if I was the same person now I was free There was such a glory over everything The sun came up like gold through the trees and I felt like I was in heaven” – Harriet TubmanThis beautiful uote introduces the seuel to The Kitchen House Glory Over Everything is an apt title as this book is ultimately about freedom from slavery and freedom from its stigma It is narrated with smoothly rotating chapters between James Caroline Pan and SukeyJames’ mother is a mulatto and his father was white When he fled the south for Philadelphia he was only 13 years old and scared Henry an escaped slave saved his life and set him on his way to live a white man’s life where his fortunes took a very positive turn He meets Caroline the daughter of influential Philadelphians and falls deeply in love However their romance is doomed She is already married and he has secrets to hidePan Henry’s 12 year old son is abducted by slave traffickers and put on a ship destined for the Deep South Henry pleads for James’ help in recovering him and James goes partly to recover from a bad situation and partly because he knows that he owes Henry a huge debt for saving his life when he was youngFrom here the story becomes darker and so filled with frightening and horrific events that I could hardly read fast enough My heart was literally pounding in places and felt like it was breaking to pieces in other places There are times when all hope of escaping their predicaments seemed impossible and there are times when the unlikeliest of souls turned out to be angels of assistance in disguiseThese two books The Kitchen House and Glory Over Everything are truly important books They tell stories that are both familiar and new; stories that are heartbreaking and uplifting They tell stories of taking strides toward freedom and the cost for some as well as the triumph for others ”I looked at my hands to see if I was the same person now I was free There was such a glory over everything The sun came up like gold through the trees and I felt like I was in heaven” – Harriet TubmanThe same as the opening uote yet with lifetimes in meaning

I truly enjoyed The Kitchen House and was thrilled to have the opportunity to read this book Dare I say I this is a case where the seuel is better than the originalTold through the perspectives of several narrators Grissom tells the story of a family woven together and torn apart by the horrors of slavery in 1830's America As in Grissom's earlier work it's a plot driven novel with many compelling and interconnected story lines Though the book borders on melodrama it is engaging and I personally found it to be moving than The Underground Railroad Glory's characters are memorable even the loathsome ones The female leads are particular firecrackers While providing a tidy enough ending for this book Grissom has also left the door wide open for a third installment in the series This fan is hoping the books keep on comingThank you to NetGalley and Simon Schuster for a galley of the book in exchange for an honest review While I was provided a galley I listened to the audio version
