    Description

    Set in 1960s Jackson, Mississippi, The Help follows the stories of three African-American maids who decide to take their destinies in their own hand and challenge the system.

    Summary Of The Book

    Aibleen, a black woman, has worked in white-households all her life. She is now helping raise her seventeenth white child. Though she is completely devoted to it, her heart is astir after the loss of her own son. Skeeter has returned home from college only to find that her beloved maid, Constantine, has been fired and no one is willing to tell why.

    Meanwhile, Ailbeen’s friend Minny works in the neighbourhood and has trouble staying in one job for long. She finally moves in with a family which is new in town and has its own ways of life.
    As the story unfolds, lives of these women intersect and they come together to confront the system that has wronged them for long.

    The Help received much acclaim upon its release in 2009 and remained on the The New York Times bestseller list for one hundred weeks. It was adapted to a major motion picture in 2011.

    Its 4 and half stars..

    The american society so proud of their existence came a long way from being a apartheid society.
