Description

The Help is the phenomenal international bestseller (that inspired the Oscar nominated film) by Kathryn Stockett where, amidst the turbulence of the Civil Rights movement, three Mississippi women quietly start their own revolution with a book, some toilets and a chocolate pie.

Enter a vanished and unjust 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 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 a search of a truth. And together they have an extraordinary story to tell...

    I personally don't think you should be writing about racism. Instead of standing up to it, you white people are making movies for your own entertainment. I really disagree with this, it is being selfish and showing that certain people will do anything to be on the front page of an article.

    This is one book that brings tears (both of euphoria and grief) to the eyes, that makes you roll on the floor laughing and then keeps you pensive for hours on end. One of the most beautiful books I have ever read, extraordinarily well written. Love, love, LOVE this book.
  • What an amazing book!

    I'm a very hard person to please when it comes to books but I loved reading The Help. I watched the film first and new there must be more to this story in the book, which there was. It's a very heartwarming but also shocking story.
