The Help, Paperback / softback Book

Description

The Help is the phenomenal international bestseller (that inspired the Oscar nominated film) by Kathryn Stockett, published as a Penguin Essential for the first timeEnter 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 . . .
