The Help

The HelpThe Help by Kathryn Stockett

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I enjoyed reading this perspective on 1960 segregation issues, focusing on black maids working for white women. Packed with heart touching stories, and appalling truths. Katheryn Stockett did an excellent job writing from three different perspectives, each with a distinct dialect and personality. Pervasive with the truth that what separates us is nothing compared to what unites us.

I was a bit worried that the ending would be a "happily ever after" or just as bad, leave me with a completely unresolved ending. Thankfully it was neither, it was a well written realistic ending, giving a realistic resolution.
