The Help by Kathryn Stockett
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
An honest, eye opening observation of the interaction between the races in Mississippi in the early 60's. It is touching without being sentimental.
However the narrative only picks up pace after aboutr 70 pages and if I hadn't heard so much about the story I may have put it down before gettiong that far and miss a great story. So, don't give up, it is worth reading on.

Writing, reading, authentic living. It's all here at The Writing Process
Welcome to my blog. Let me start by telling you that I love writing. I love the sense of vitality it gives me. I love that it helps me to make sense of the world and to the people in it. I love that it helps me become wiser, more intuitive, empathic, and most of all autonomous.
All aspects - reading, writing and observing - are what make the process complete. The essence is storytelling, and learning about
life and yourself.
