Synopsis

The #1 New York Times bestselling novel and basis for the Academy Award-winning film.

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...


From the Trade Paperback edition.

    Great Book

    This book was an amazing. Kathryn Stockett wrote such an insightful, moving novel. It was incredibly hard not to become attached to her characters. Worth the read!

    One of the best books I've read

    This book is about segregation in the South, particularly the life of domestic servants. It is also about standing up for what you believe in, the challenges of family and relationships, and the power of writing.

    What a gorgeous book. I loved the characters and that they were brave enough to start the process of change. Well written and you really get a feel for the characters. Loved it.
