In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another. A deeply moving novel filled with poignancy, humor, and hope, The Help is a timeless and universal story about the lines we abide by, and the ones we don't.

This is the best book I've downloaded and listened to so far and I've purchased several. This was so touching and so real. I can't wait until the author writes her next!

I've listened to about 10 Audible audiobooks, mostly historical fiction. This is my first attempt at a review. I felt so strongly about this book that I decided to go for it. You will NOT be disappointed. This is a fantastic story in every way. You will put your credit (or $) to great use.
