Kathleen Grissom is a masterful storyteller!
While Glory Over Everything is a sequel to Grissom’s first novel, The Kitchen House (read my review here), it works nicely as a stand-alone as well.
Grissom has a talent for developing her characters into people you actually feel like you know, getting her readers to quickly become emotionally involved as the story progresses.
I was sad to say goodbye to this book and its characters.
I would say that I liked The Kitchen House slightly more…but I think that’s because I was trying to connect the stories together more than was actually necessary. Once I let go of trying to figure out what each character brought to the new story, I relaxed and was able to enjoy the story in it’s own right.
If you’ve read both of these, which one did you prefer?
