      PDF/EPUB mdeparenpar.co å The House Girl PDF/EPUB Ù The House Epub / house kindle, girl download, The House book, 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 She refused to edit herself and pare away the redundancies She beat us over the head in sentences like Truth was multilayered shifting it was different for everyone each personal history carved uniue from the same weighty block of time and flesh Plus this book could probably win a prize for the most commas ever used by an American writer Now on to the plotting Yuck This

      PDF/EPUB mdeparenpar.co å The House Girl PDF/EPUB Ù The House Epub / house kindle, girl download, The House book, The House Girl EpubI don't often review a book but I have to say something about this one I just have to wonder about all the 4 star and 5 star ratings here This book is readable certainly but not at all the page turner I expected from hearing others idolize it The present day character Lina is a lawyer in a high powered NY firm looking for a plaintiff to represent a class action lawsuit on behalf of slaves brought to the United States who were obviously never compensated for their work The book moves between Lina and Josephine a house girl slave in the 1800s working for a Mr and Missus sic Bell Mr Bell is not having good luck with his crops and feeling soured treats Josephine cruelly while Missus Bell or less seems to take a maternal interest in her At a

      PDF/EPUB mdeparenpar.co å The House Girl PDF/EPUB Ù The House Epub / house kindle, girl download, The House book, 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 alternatin

      PDF/EPUB mdeparenpar.co å The House Girl PDF/EPUB Ù The House Epub / house kindle, girl download, The House book, 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 force the uestion with her father all she had to do was look for the death certificate Certainly an attorney could manage that simple task If her mother had actually died in a car crash she certainly could have found an a

      PDF/EPUB mdeparenpar.co å The House Girl PDF/EPUB Ù The House Epub / house kindle, girl download, The House book, 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 o

      PDF/EPUB mdeparenpar.co å The House Girl PDF/EPUB Ù The House Epub / house kindle, girl download, The House book, 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
