The Help by Kathryn Stockett
Now a Hollywood movie, The Help is an amazing book you will thoroughly enjoy.
Authoress Kathryn Stockett has managed to write a superb novel that will make you feel as if you are right there in Jackson, Mississippi, in the early 1960s.
The Civil rights Movement had begun, and the difference between the rich white people and their black maids was wide.
One young white woman wanted to change things.
Miss Skeeter was a young college graduate who with the help of two black friends, Aibileen and Minnie, both maids , decided to write a book.
The story is told through the narratives of each of the three women.
You will laugh, you will cry, but you will love their characters and not want to leave them when you reach the end of the book.
And what better thing can you say about a book?
