    The wildly popular New York Times bestseller and reading group favorite

    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...

    • Southern Belles ring louder with Help.

      This book has moved me to tears; laughs, shock, reflection, gratitude, and so much more. Though I'm almost to the end, I can't wait to pick it up, in a few years, to read again.
