The book that has been chosen for June is The Kitchen house by Kathleen Grissom.
“When a white servant girl violates the order of plantation society, she unleashes a tragedy that exposes the worst and best in the people she has come to call her family. Orphaned while onboard ship from Ireland, seven-year-old Lavinia arrives on the steps of a tobacco plantation where she is to live and work with the slaves of the kitchen house. Under the care of Belle, the master’s illegitimate slave daughter, Lavinia becomes deeply bonded to her adopted family, though she is set apart from them by her white skin.”
