I give this book five stars, it is enriching and poignant to the point of which I must read another novel regarding to inequality and segregation in the 1960's. This book is about the lives of black maids during a time of segregation, oppression, inequality and compassion. We follow the lives of Aibileen Clark, a black maid, her best friend Minny Jackson and Skeeter Phelan deep in the south of Jackson, Mississippi. Their lives intertwine on a potentially life threatening project: to tell their stories as black maids working under their white families.
