The Help

by Kathryn Stockett

4.4/5

Aibileen is a black maid in 1962, who’s always taken orders quietly, but lately she’s unable to hold her bitterness back. Her friend Minny has never held her tongue but now must somehow keep secrets about her employer that leave her speechless. White socialite Skeeter just graduated college. She’s full of ambition, but without a husband, she’s considered a failure.

“I always thought insanity would be a dark, bitter feeling, but it is drenching and delicious if you really roll around in it.”

Kathryn Stockett, The Help
