The wildly popular New York Times bestseller and reading group favorite

Aibileen is a black maid in 1962 Jackson, Mississippi, who's always taken orders quietly, but lately she's unable to hold her bitterness back. Her friend Minny has never held her tongue but now must somehow keep secrets about her employer that leave her speechless. White socialite Skeeter just graduated college. She's full of ambition, but without a husband, she's considered a failure. Together, these seemingly different women join together to write a tell-all book about work as a black maid in the South, that could forever alter their destinies and the life of a small town...

CagneyC's thoughts on "The Help"

This book brings home the separation and some of the illogic in the 1960's South between whites and blacks.  There is also quite a difference noted between whites by class.  The understanding of some whites and blacks for each other and the total lack of understanding of others is also shown.  The consummate adult "bully" depicted in the character of Hilly is extremely well drawn, and the fear of her "followers" represented by Elizabeth is well described as well.  For a different but also good depiction of this time and this type of setting in America, I recommend the movie "The Long Walk Home", starring Whoopi Goldberg and Sissy Spacek.
