Publisher Description

The #1 New York Times bestselling novel and basis for the Academy Award-winning film—a timeless and universal story about the lines we abide by, and the ones we don’t—nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read.

Aibileen is a black maid in 1962 Jackson, Mississippi, 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.

Together, these seemingly different women join together to write a tell-all book about work as a black maid in the South, that could forever alter their destinies and the life of a small town...

Unexpectedly brilliant

I was unprepared for how amazing this book turned out to be. When I had finished reading it I was sad. Not because of how it ended, which can happen with a lot of books these days, they start off well but by the end one is ready to fling them across the room in disgust or pat it on it's proverbial head because you feel bad for it. No, I was sad merely because it was over and I had read it too quickly and should have paced myself.

The characters are wonderful and there are so many moments where I laughed out loud. Kathryn Stockett's narrative is wonderful.

I am so looking forward to her next book.

Happy with my shepherds ,

Can't stop reading

Fantastic story, I would never take the time to write a review, but this story gives me the feeling of reading a book during my teenage years. I am no teenager anymore! I hope the writer would keep on writing and give us more of this! Liking this story has nothing to do with my iPad and yes, I love it too.
