She is heartbroken that their own maid and the woman who raised her has left. She misses Constantine and would have gone to her for advise. She decides to choose the maid of a friend, a woman she grew up with and who now has a child and maid of her own. Skeeter and Aibileen become more than just a white woman and a black maid helping her, they become partners in something much bigger.
After reading this book, I feel I may have given a 5 star rating to too many previous reads. This book was simply too good! Thought provoking and sweet, and made me cry towards the end. The book made me think about my own relationships with people of other races, and wonder what I project in these relationships. It made me think back to a time of unrest in our country.
I loved Skeeter and Aibileen, and in time I grew to love the character of Minny. This review is a 5 out of 5 stars……..I loved it!
I am recommending this book to everyone I know, it’s so very good. The Help will stay with me for some time. Have you ever read a book you don’t want to forget and hate to start another? I feel this way right now, not 10 minutes after I have finished reading it.
