The Help

by Kathryn Stockett

Behind the scenes in the southern U.S. in the 1960s seen through the eyes of black maids working for white families and a young white woman who is bucking the system. They get together and write a book but they know the consequences will be terrible if certain people ever find out.

I listened to the audiobook version of this book and it kept me spellbound. The three narrators were excellent and really made the story come alive. The novel is very well-written, but rather graphic at times.
