My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I could not put this book down! Kathryn Stockett's portrayals of Abileen, Minnie, and Skeeter were so vivid and realistic, I felt I was listening to each of them speaking personally to me. I have no idea of how close to reality the fictional experiences of these women are, it felt very true. I have lived always in the north, and until only very recently, I have never had any household help. (We've just recently found someone to come in occasionally to help with cleaning.) What came through for me loud and clear, however, was the universality of all women's fears, concerns, wants, and needs.
