** spoiler alert ** The Kitchen House started off strong, and grabbed my interest right from the beginning. But as the story wore on, it just became a story of how many wrong things could happen to or around one person.

After all of that we were supposed to believe that this same person would remain naive enough to still have a child-like innocence into adulthood. Not happening, my friend.

Then the poor thing didn't even get a truly happy ending. I mean she got a mediocre one, but not a great one. I know, stories based on reality don't always end well. I don't expect them to, but I'm also really tired of stories having to be the worst that humans can endure, they survive, but that's all they do (survive, not live). And while this might be historical-fiction, it was just that (fiction), not based on a true story. It could've had a better ending.
