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.
What a great surprise!

I suspect this book is better heard than read. Each voice is distinct, beautiful in quality; Aibileen's is like velvet, Minny's rich and deep, Skeeter's girlish till the reader becomes the sharp New York editor. I finished the book and then started it all over again. It's a captivating story, too.
