Description de l’éditeur

***The phenomenal international bestseller that inspired the Oscar-nominated film***

Enter 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...

D'agréables moments de lecture

Voilà un roman bien ficelé avec moult rebondissements. De longs moments de lecture pendant lesquels on ne s'ennuie jamais.

The help

Étonnamment écrit avec l'accent traînant du sud américain, ce superbe livre est confondant d'exactitude. La relation qu'il décrit si bien entre les familles blanches et leurs servantes noires est pleine de mépris et d'aversion, mais aussi d'une affection réciproque profonde. C'est sur cette affection que se reconstruit aujourd'hui encore, difficilement une nouvelle relation. La route reste longue, mais le lien reste fort.
