9780141047706: The Help

It was Jackson, Mississippi, 1962. Black maids raise white children, but aren't trusted not to steal the silver. Some lines will never be crossed. Aibileen is a black maid: smart, regal, and raising her seventeenth white child. Yet something shifted inside Aibileen the day her own son died while his bosses looked the other way. Minny, Aibileen's best friend, is by some way the sassiest woman in Mississippi. But even her extraordinary cooking won't protect Minny from the consequences of her tongue. Twenty-two-year-old Skeeter returns home with a degree and a head full of hope, but her mother will not be happy until there's a ring on her finger. Seeking solace with Constantine, the beloved maid who raised her, Skeeter finds she has gone. But why will no one tell her where? Seemingly as different as can be, Skeeter, Aibileen and Minny's lives converge over a clandestine project that will not only put them all at risk but also change the town of Jackson for ever. But why? And for what? "The Help" is a deeply moving, timeless and universal story about the lines we abide by, and the ones we won't. Itis about how women, whether mothers or daughters, the help or the boss, relate to each other - and that terrible feeling that those who look after your children may understand them, even love them, better than you.

The book everyone is falling in love with . . .

Review:

The other side of Gone with the Wind - and just as unputdownable ( Sunday Times)

A big, warm girlfriend of a book ( The Times)

Harper Lee's classic novel To Kill a Mockingbird has changed lives. Its direct descendent The Help has the same potential...an astonishing feat of accomplishment ( Daily Express)

Outstanding, immensely funny, very compelling, brilliant ( Daily Telegraph)

Daring, vitally important and very courageous, I loved and admired The Help. Fantastic (Marian Keyes)

A laugh-out-loud, vociferously angry must-read ( Marie Claire)

Touching, disgraceful, funny. Highly recommended ( Daily Mail)
