    ePUB pamyatnik.pro ï The House Girl PDF/EPUB ↠ The House PDF \ house pdf, girl pdf, The House ebok, The House Girl EpubI liked the beginning of this book and thought it had a lot of promise I liked the way the two stories were set during slavery and the present I often like dual narration and get absorbed by two different viewpoints I like the topic of slave reparations wondering at the outset how we could ever be so arrogant as to think we could repair our actions in any meaningful way I expected the author to give me some food for thoughtInstead it just progressively annoyed me until I had to force myself to finish it This book was totally overwritten The author tried too darn hard to make this book weighty with truths S

    ePUB pamyatnik.pro ï The House Girl PDF/EPUB ↠ The House PDF \ house pdf, girl pdf, The House ebok, The House Girl EpubFeeling a little guilty by not explaining my 1 star rating so here is my review that I submitted to Outstanding ratings historical fiction captivating subject; on all counts I should have loved this book Unfortunately the writer's narrative descriptions were unbearable She describes everything in laborious detail even the most inane subjects and banal situations Don't get me wrong I love descriptive writing but this was complete overkill Here is an excerpt from Conklin's description of Lina's law officeLina exited the elevator and walked the east corridor toward her office To her left the secretaries buzzed and clacked and sipped The secretaries

    ePUB pamyatnik.pro ï The House Girl PDF/EPUB ↠ The House PDF \ house pdf, girl pdf, The House ebok, The House Girl EpubIt's hard to believe that this is a debut novel Tara Conklin has beautifully written an emotional story of a young woman slave in Virginia in 1852 and skillfully connects that story to a young woman an attorney living in present day New York City She brings history to life with Josephine's story and we see the cruelties of slavery the desire for freedom and the courageous fight for it I love the alternating narratives of Josephine and Lina and how Lina's story helps unfold the story of Josephine the artist The writing is so good that you can almost see the paintings as they are described and almost feel what the characters feelI have read a number of books recently which use the mechanis

    ePUB pamyatnik.pro ï The House Girl PDF/EPUB ↠ The House PDF \ house pdf, girl pdf, The House ebok, The House Girl EpubI received an advanced reader's copy of this book and I am fairly certain that no one will ever let me win a giveaway again after this review This book is very very bad In a book about slavery and reparations I do not think it would be out of line to expand descriptions of key characters beyond dark and pale One main character has dark eyes and black hair; her mom has dark hair and pale skin and darkgreen eyes; her dad has dark frazzled hair and blue eyes; someone has dark eyebrows death is darkness and so on for the entire book

The horse that still must fit the bit between its teeth? Was Missus free? But what else to dream for? There was no dream of Josephine’s that did not contain a place where she might sit and look upon a field or a bird in flight or a person and ponder

    ePUB pamyatnik.pro ï The House Girl PDF/EPUB ↠ The House PDF \ house pdf, girl pdf, The House ebok, The House Girl EpubStarted out pretty good but the main character in the present Lina Sparrow just seemed to get stupider and stupider as the story progressed Has she never heard of Ancestrycom? Also that missive from Caleb Harper that explained just about EVERYTHING about Josephine and her baby was just too convenient And the story line about her mother was completely ridiculous and unbelievable Again if she was curious about her mother's death and was too spineless to for

    ePUB pamyatnik.pro ï The House Girl PDF/EPUB ↠ The House PDF \ house pdf, girl pdf, The House ebok, The House Girl EpubI felt annoyed by this book The law suite was impossible and ridiculous It was like the author started the first half of the book thinking it was a great idea and then through her own research realized it was never going to pan out Instead of re writing the whole story she simply used one of her characters to explain why the law suit wasn't going to work and from that point on in the book the author had to change her perspective and create a new reason for the modern day side of the story to be relevantThe side of the book that featured the Plantation Slave girl was interesting but extremely repetitive The author forced us to re read the slave girl's life story over and over again each time adding a tiny bit of something newI felt like the author started writing the first chapter and never stopped she'd keep going until she hit a snag

    ePUB pamyatnik.pro ï The House Girl PDF/EPUB ↠ The House PDF \ house pdf, girl pdf, The House ebok, The House Girl EpubFull Disclosure I went to high school with Tara but haven't seen her since we graduatedIt was an odd experience to read a book by someone with whom I was a teenager I spent the first few pages being overly judgmental about grammar and comma placement Sorry Tara But within about five or six pages it stopped being about High School Friend now Author Tara and all about the characters and the storyThis first novel tells the powerful and compelling story of Josephine a slave in Virginia in the mid nineteenth century and Lina a young lawyer for a prestigious New York law firm in the present Lina's firm has just taken on a case that will deal with slavery reparations and Lina is searching for a descendent of slaves to act as the plaintiff This will make an excellent book club pick or vacation read Although the themes leave you with plenty to discuss ponder and contemplate the story moves ui
