In "Kindred", where does Dana spend most of her time in the Weylin household?

Expert Answers

The only place where the slaves felt safe, and which Dana herself refered to as the "safehouse" for slaves was the cookhouse. In the cookhouse, the slaves felt free to talk to each other and speak about whatever they wanted. In there, they also ate and shared. Dana would use that place also to read and teach the little one to read. Aside from the cookhouse, the only other place she felt safe was the attic, where she slept with the other slaves, or when she finally moved into Kevin's room. Nevertheless, it was the cookhouse where she would spend most of her safe time.
