In Review...

The Help 
By Katheryn Stockett







































Have you read it, or seen the movie?   Well, if not...I suggest you do so.   It's a remarkable story that takes you back to Mississippi in the 1960's.   It explains the relationship between white women, and white families and their help.  

Reading this book, it really makes you take a back seat and think about how you treat people...how people treat you, too.  I can't imagine being transplanted into that time, when white people were afraid of black people - thinking they carried diseases, etc.  To think now, we have our first black President...  How far we've come...

Having just finished the book, I will be watching the movie today.  I cannot wait to see the images the book illustrates for you in your mind come to life.

What books have you read lately?
