    ITEM#: 11385574

    Kathryn Stockett was born and raised in Jackson, Mississippi. After graduating from the University of Alabama with a degree in English and Creative Writing, she moved to New York City where she worked in magazine publishing and marketing for nine years. She currently lives in Atlanta with her husband and daughter. This is her first novel.
    Be prepared to meet three unforgettable women.

    Twenty-two-year-old Skeeter has just returned home after graduating from Ole Miss. She may have a degree, but it is 1962, Mississippi, and her mother will not be happy till Skeeter has a ring on her finger. Skeeter would normally find solace with her beloved maid Constantine, the woman who raised her, but Constantine has disappeared and no one will tell Skeeter where she has gone.

    Aibileen is a black maid, a wise, regal woman raising her seventeenth white child. Something has shifted inside her after the loss of her own son, who died while his bosses looked the other way. She is devoted to the little girl she looks after, though she knows both their hearts may be broken.

    Minny, Aibileen’s best friend, is short, fat, and perhaps the sassiest woman in Mississippi. She can cook like nobody’s business, but she can’t mind her tongue, so she’s lost yet another job. Minny finally finds a position working for someone too new to town to know her reputation. But her new boss has secrets of her own.

    Seemingly as different from one another as can be, these women will nonetheless come together for a clandestine project that will put them all at risk. And why? Because they are suffocating within the lines that define their town and their times. And sometimes lines are made to be crossed.

    In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women— mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends—view one another. A deeply moving novel filled with poignancy, humor, and hope, The Help is a timeless and universal story about the lines we abide by, and the ones we don’t.

    • Best audiobook I've listened to this year!

      While this is an outstanding book with a poingnant story the readers in this audiobook make it feel so personal and heartfelt. I would recommend this format for anyone who wants to really feel that they were in Jackson in the early 60's.

    • Beautifully written and read...

      I loved this so much, I purchased it for several friends, then we all went to see the movie together. Hands down, this story is best experienced in this format, read and "performed" by this incredibly talented cast of actresses who bring life to these beautiful characters.

    • So Glad I found the CD

      I purchased the book two months ago, but can never find the time to read it. When I saw that Overstock had the Compact Disc I was thrilled because I could play it and go about my regular chores and listen while riding in the car. Thanks Overstock!
