The Help by Kathryn Stockett [women's fiction, historical fiction]

ENTER A VANISHED WORLD:
JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI, 1962.
WHERE BLACK MAIDS RAISE WHITE CHILDREN,
BUT AREN'T TRUSTED NOT TO STEAL THE SILVER...

There's Aibileen, raising her seventeenth white child and nursing the hurt caused by her own son's tragic death; Minny, whose cooking is nearly as sassy as her tongue; and white Miss Skeeter, home from college, who wants to know why her beloved maid has disappeared.

Skeeter, Aibileen and Minny. No one else would believe they'd be friends; fewer still would tolerate it. But as each woman finds the courage to cross boundaries, they come to depend and rely upon one another. Each is in search of a truth. And together they have an extraordinary story to tell...

  5. I've heard a lot about this book but have never picked it up because it is so far outside the genres I am comfortable with. I hope you enjoy it. Come see what I got at Inside of a Dog and Ms. Martin Teaches Media if you get a chance. Happy reading!
