Reading: The Help
Yes, finally, reading The Help by Kathryn Stockett, for book group. A best seller, 4+ stars on Amazon, starred review from Publisher's Weekly, so, probably not surprising that I am enjoying it. It's the engrossing story of a group of women from Jackson, Mississippi in the early 1960's -- some of them young, white women and others their African-American maids. I'm only a quarter of the way through it, so I can't say how it will ultimately seem to me, but I am liking it SO much better than the last book I read.
