The Help

by Kathryn Stockett

The Help ia an inspirational novel. Author Kathryn Stockett's first novel shines light on southern black women's financial problems, typical lifestyle and back breaking-labor filled jobs. Mrs.Stockett writes about a period when tension was high among black people fighting for justice. The Help is an amazing novel based in 1962 and beyond, showing that some white women can respect people of the opposite color, represented by Ms. Sketter, wise Aibileen and big-mouth Minny.
