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, Aibileen's best friend, is short, fat, and perhaps the sassiest woman in Mississippi. She can cook like nobody's business, but she can't mind her tongue, so she's 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, friends--view 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 don't.

I didn't understand the title before i read this book, but after reading The Help you begin to understand the deep meaning behind these words. You find yourself taken back to a time when there were certain things you just did, or did not do! It enlightened and entertained me ! I loved every minute I was reading this book!

I really enjoyed the story. The author wrote characters that you grew to love (and a few that you would you will do anything but). A realistic look into race relations in the 1960s. I would definitely recommend this book to others.

I had already listened to the audio version of this story a long time ago, so I knew it was fantastic and wanted to buy the book as a gift. I bought it for my shower hostess, who loves to read, along with a book light. It arrived quickly and in good condition. I thought Walmart had a very reasonable price on it, especially for a hardcover. The only thing that could be improved is if they offered the option to ship to the store for free on this product or offered it in the store so I didn't have to pay shipping. The shipping rate wasn't that high either though. Pleased with purchase.
