The Help is a personal story of race and relationships in America. It is set in the recent past, showing how the pain of racism is still a fresh wound. I was surprised that the author wrote from the perspective of a black woman, but it seems she really captured the essence, drawn from the relationships she experienced as a child. You'll love this book, I hope.
