Book Review Thursday: The Help

It's going to be a short post, but only because the best word to describe "The Help" is AMAZING.

I can honestly say that it was easily the best book I've ever read, and I highly recommend reading it. It's a book that made it easy to put yourself in 1960s Jackson, Mississippi while reading brought me back to remembering and understanding just how recent civil rights was that eminent in our country....and brought me to a place where at times I wanted to be a young Southern woman who was best friends with Skeeter.

I had a really hard time putting this one down, and if you haven't read it yet, buy it or borrow it. You'll have a hard time dropping the book too.

"The Help" is available for download on the Kindle, and purchase on
