I know I am super slow with reading this book. You've probably all read it already. But I wanted to add my two cents.
I loved this book. So very well written.
It follows the lives of three different women living in the south during a time when things were changing here in the south. One of them is a white woman who is shunned by her friends when she sticks up for the Help.
She then convinces several ladies to tell her their stories to compile a book for her to send to New York City to publish.
It's a great story that helps us women realize that there are not borders keeping us from being friends with everyone, just the borders we place on ourselves. It was a real eye opener and it helped me see what it might have been like to live during that time.
If you have not read this book, I would recommend it. It's worth getting from the library, for sure. Or even buying, if you're the kind who likes to buy!
