Written By: Tara Conklin

Narrated By: Bahni Turpin

Publisher: HarperAudio

The House Girl, the historical fiction debut by Tara Conklin, is an unforgettable story of love, history, and a search for justice, set in modern-day New York and 1852 Virginia.
Weaving together the story of an escaped slave in the pre–Civil War South and a determined junior lawyer, The House Girl follows Lina Sparrow as she looks for an appropriate lead plaintiff in a lawsuit seeking compensation for families of slaves. In her research, she learns about Lu Anne Bell, a renowned prewar artist whose famous works might have actually been painted by her slave, Josephine.
Featuring two remarkable, unforgettable heroines, Tara Conklin's The House Girl is riveting and powerful, literary fiction at its very best.

    Too many irrelevant subplots and descriptions. Might be an interesting book to skim through, but as an audio I just couldn't get into in.

  • Lisa Tapper

    This book was good took a little to get going. I thought this similar to The Help, although without the humor, more serious story.
