The Help by Kathryn Stockett

The Help is about a young white woman in the early 1960s in Mississippi who becomes interested in the plight of the black ladies' maids that every family has working for them. She writes their stories about mistreatment, abuse and heartbreaks of working in white families' homes, all just before the Civil Rights revolution. That is the story in a nutshell - but it is so much more than just stories.

OK - so if you have ever seen this book then you know it is rather long. I have put off reading this partly due to length, but also just really didn't think I would like it.

Well, I wish I had read it sooner!!!! It was amazing well written. Will make you laugh, break your heart, scare you and cause you to count your blessings!!!

So take a minute to download it, order it, store at the book store , borrow it from a friends or run to the Library BECAUSE - YOU MUST READ!

It's amazing!!

Definately a 5 Star in my book!!!
