About this item

Be prepared to meet three unforgettable women.

Twenty-two-year-old Skeeter has just returned home after graduating from Ole Miss. She may have a degree, but it is 1962, Mississippi, and her mother will not be happy till Skeeter has a ring on her finger. Skeeter would normally find solace with her beloved maid Constantine, the woman who raised her, but Constantine has disappeared and no one will tell Skeeter where she has gone.

Aibileen is a black maid, a wise, regal woman raising her seventeenth white child. Something has shifted inside her after the loss of her own son, who died while his bosses looked the other way. She is devoted to the little girl she looks after, though she knows both their hearts may be broken.

Minny, Aibileens best friend, is short, fat, and perhaps the sassiest woman in Mississippi. She can cook like nobodys business, but she cant mind her tongue, so shes lost yet another job. Minny finally finds a position working for someone too new to town to know her reputation. But her new boss has secrets of her own.

Seemingly as different from one another as can be, these women will nonetheless come together for a clandestine project that will put them all at risk. And why? Because they are suffocating within the lines that define their town and their times. And sometimes lines are made to be crossed.

In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women mothers, daughters, caregivers, friendsview one another. A deeply moving novel filled with poignancy, humor, and hope, The Help is a timeless and universal story about the lines we abide by, and the ones we dont.

A Wonderful and Thought Provoking Read

Customer review by An anonymous customer

5.0 stars by An anonymous customer

As a product of the South in the 60's, this book showed the "good, the bad and the ugly" of Southern women and the "help" that they employed. I knew good women that employed help - some that still employ the same women! Of course, there were the ones that overstepped and took advantage of their position - both types are represented in the book. The Help is written in a consise, light and honest tone - sometimes not showing one or the other side in a very good light! It was great! I thought more about this book after I finished it that any that I have read in recent history. I highly recommend it! I LOVED it in it's audio form - the characters are so believable and descriptive! Sometimes quite hysterical - I noticed my husband hanging around a lot when I was listening to it while getting ready for work or in the car! A sure sign that it was captivating!
