The Help by Kathryn Stockett

I finished The Help last night, and I loved it.  I wasn't sure what to expect when I started it because I avoided the reviews and book description prior to reading it.  I know there is a lot of talk about this book, and I did not want to set myself up for disappointment.  The characters are beautifully developed, you're going to love them.  It is so hard for me to believe that this is the way our country was such a short time ago though.  However, don't avoid the book because it seems like it may be a downer.  The story is both sad and funny with characters that the reader really cares about.  I rate it a 5/5.

I'm really looking forward to reading this one someday, so I was glad to read that you loved it, Christine!

I hope all is well with you. I've been overwhelmed with work lately. Hubby's sick and there's something in the attic that keeps setting the dog off barking. Great fun. :-S

Yikes...something in the attic? I hope that the hubby is feeling better. I think you'll like this book very much whenever you get to it.
