Awesome and amazing! Story of 3 women in the South of the 1960's. Two of the main characters are domestics, "the help" of the title. The third is a white woman from a well-to-do family who comes home from college with eyes opened to Civil Rights. She interviews anonymously "the help" to hear the story of what it is like to raise up someone else's white babies only to see them grow up racist. Moving story but also funny in spots.

I absolutely LOVED this book and didn't want it to end! I was a bit disappointed with the ending, but I think the author just left herself open for writing a sequel. The movie opens here this week and I will definitely be going to see it this weekend!
