The Help, by Kathryn Stockett

Five stars! I would rank this novel among the very top picks on my list. I loved reading the various points of view during a time in history after slavery but before integration and civil rights. Various perspectives are juxtaposed among the black help and the white female employers who are all struggling against their different forms of oppression.

I would highly recommend this book!


  1. I forgot to mention that I can't wait to see the movie!

  2. I just saw the movie with my book club. We all loved it! I was pleased with how faithful it was to the book, and the casting and acting was excellent!
