***The phenomenal international bestseller that inspired the Oscar-nominated film***

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 really loved reading The Help. It is not the typical book I would read, however a friend recommended it to me. After the setup of characters etc, I couldn't put it down. It shows how a female college graduate learns to care about the plight of the black maids who work for many white families. Vivid scene setting that took me back to that time and place as well as strong characterisation. The story deals with how people treat and mistreat each other as power or status permit. The writer uses language well.
