If you have ever heard of the Kama Sutra, chances are that you heard about the hot, steamy sex positions that are included in this text. Though this is the most popular section of the Kama Sutra, it is not the only one. There are seven sections in the book of the Kama Sutra, each of them designated to give direction to men and women on experiencing pleasure to arrive at a level of divination. The Kama Sutra refers to a treatise on desire and that it is exactly what the book is. It was an instruction manual made for the Hindu religion on how to experience different pleasures. Instead of abstaining from pleasure, the Hindus believe that it must be moderated as an essential part of life. Anyway, now let's get to the fun stuff.

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.
