A fantastic book, and the audio version is very well done. The women narrating give great depth to the text and transport you into Mississippi in the 60's. The novel provides such an insight into the lives of "the help". A must-read and must-listen!
One of the best audio books I have heard. The narrators made you feel like you were there. Excellent story that takes you back to the dawn of the civil rights movement in the South. I didn't want it to end.
This is a wonderful book made even richer by the reading as an audible book! I intended to listen to this slowly over two months while travelling - instead I was done in 5 days, addicted and greedily searching for my earpiece at every opportunity. Get this - your life will be better for the listening!
This was a deeply satisfying audio tape. I would add something others haven't mentioned: it was gripping. Once the characters begin working on a project--you are full of suspense regarding the possible outcome.
This is a brilliantly narrated story of the triumph of humanity over convention. We baby boomers all lived through it, each of us in our own place and our own experience... Kathryn Sockett transcends both time, place and race in her intricate weaving of the character of giving and taking. The narrators are just plain dazzling.
