[Kathleen Grissom] ☆ Glory over Everything: Beyond The Kitchen House [christian-non-fiction PDF] Ebook Epub Download ↠´ Even though this book is not due out until next April I just had to read it as soon as I was approved I was granted an ARC of this novel from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review I am a huge fan of Kathleen Grissom I loved The Kitchen House and purchased it for several members of my family I was absolutely thrilled that she wrote this follow up.
I was not disappointed The story picks up many years after the The Kitchen House and we follow the life of Jaime Pyke who has moved to Philadelphia He has been passing as white and is a well established silver smith who eventually owns his own shop and home He was fortunate enough to have a silversmith who took him in and trained him in the art I was glad that the author provided back story to Jaime s life as it has been quite some time since I read The Kitchen House When he is approached by Henry, a free black who helped him rise and b 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 quote introduces the sequel 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 Sukey.
James 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 ha The Latest New York Times Bestseller From The Author Of The Beloved Book Club Favorite The Kitchen House Is A Heart Racing Story About A Man S Treacherous Journey Through The Twists And Turns Of The Underground Railroad On A Mission To Save The Boy He Swore To Protect Glory Over Everything Is Gripping Breathless Until The End Kirkus ReviewsThe Year Is And Jamie Pyke, A Celebrated Silversmith And Notorious Ladies Man, Is Keeping A Deadly Secret Passing As A Wealthy White Aristocrat In Philadelphian Society, Jamie Is Now Living A Life He Could Never Have Imagined 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 Consequences 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 Under Her Wing, Jamie Navigates Their Way, Racing Against Time And Their Ruthless Pursuers Through The Virginia Backwoods, The Underground Railroad, And The Treacherous Great Dismal Swamp Kathleen Grissom Is A First Rate Storyteller She Observes With An Unwavering But Kind Eye, And She Bestows Upon The Reader, Amid Terrible Secrets And Sin, A Gift Of Mercy The Belief That Hope Can Triumph Over Hell Richmond Times Dispatch Glory Over Everything Is An Emotionally Rewarding And Epic Novel Filled With Romance, Villains, Violence, Courage, Compassion And Suspense Florida Courier Where, then, did I belong Was my birth an accident of fate, or was my life intended to have some purpose Jamie Pyke, fair skinned son of a slave named Belle and a cruel master named Marshall, ran from his Virginian plantation home, his heritage and his fate at the age of thirteen James Burton, wealthy Philadelphia businessman and heir to the silversmith shop and fortune of his kindly adoptive parents, has spent his teen years and adulthood hiding his former identity When James falls for a beautiful white woman of high social standing, his secret is threatened The disappearance of his devoted servant, Pan, presents a moral dilemma to James Pan s father, Henry, who once rescued James in his time of need, begs James to search for his son whom he believes has been abducted and sold into slavery in the south But 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 sequel is better than the original Told 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 coming.
Thank you to NetGalley and Simon S I really enjoyed this but not as much as The Kitchen House I adored Pan and would love to see a follow up to his story down the road This can be read as a stand alone novel but recommend reading, or even, rereading The Kitchen House first 4 stars.
I m on a role with my ratings recently and this one is no different I started reading it on my trip to CA, but couldn t get into it Started it again once I was back and I couldn t put it down Glory picks up after The Kitchen House and follows Jamie Pyke as he navigates life after escaping Rankin, Master Marshall, and the plantation he lived on Jamie lives as a white man, painting for a living, and enjoying the perks of a socialite in Philadelphia It all changes when his secret parentage is revealed and the race begins I loved this one so much than The Kitchen House how is that even possible The story was elaborate and detailed I enjoyed meeting all of the new characters and found myself rooting for them to overcome their obstacles The final third, I couldn t turn the pages fast enough to find out how Grissom would Thank you to NetGalley and Simon Schuster for an egalley I chose to listen to a finished audio copy.
Jamie Pike from The Kitchen House is now James Burton, wealthy silversmith and artist of Philadelphia I think I liked this than the original, even though I ve given them both 4 stars There are some wonderful characters that we get to know, and James, although very well formed and sympathetic, was probably my least favorite, when compared to the truly great and not as well formed Robert, Pan, Addy, and Sukie I greatly appreciated the ease in following the chapters each told us what year it was and whose point of view was up Gradually I was completely absorbed and taken by the story, which had some sad moments and heartbreak, some close calls, death as well as new life, and with the Underground Railroad perhaps some hope for the future.

I jumped at the chance to read an advance copy of this book because of how much I loved The Kitchen House I was so anxious to get this book that I requested it from two sources just to increase my odds of getting it I was fortunate enough to receive a digital copy from both and I thank NetGalley and Edelweiss as well as the publisher, Simon Schuster and Kathleen Grissom This is the story of James Burton, or Jamie Pyke as we knew him as a child in the first book James was raised as white by a woman he believed to be his grandmother but is the son of a slave woman Belle , raped by her master There are multiple narrators of this story beginning with James and in his sections we learn how he came to be James Burton While a lot of the book is devoted to his story , this is also the story in the larger sense of the most shameful time in our history It it throug 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 enslaved.
The 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 forg
