Summary:

The #1 New York Times bestselling novel and basis for the Academy Award–winning film.
 
Aibileen is a black maid in 1962 Jackson, Mississippi, who's always taken orders quietly, but lately she's unable to hold her bitterness back. Her friend Minny has never held her tongue but now must somehow keep secrets about her employer that leave her speechless. White socialite Skeeter just graduated college. She's full of ambition, but without a husband, she's considered a failure. Together these seemingly different women join together to write a tell-all book about work as a black maid in the South, that could forever alter their destinies and the life of a small town.

    A great book, that makes you really feel the what times were like back then. Great read/listen to, I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves history or has a heart. I didn't want it to stop, if you liked the movie then you'll love the book. But be warned you might want a big box of tissues next to you at all times when you read/listen to this book!

    I had already read the book and seen the movie. I loved this audiobook because they had multiple readers who all did a terrific job portraying the various characters. Well done.
