aSet in the rural South of the 1960's, "THE HELP" is a startling, resonant portrait of the intertwined lives of women on opposite sides of the racial divide. Stockett's many gifts a a keen eye for character, a wicked sense of humor, the perfect timing of a natural born storyteller a shine as she evokes a time and place when black women were expected to help raise white babies, and yet could not use the same bathroom as their employers. Her characters, both white and black, are so fully fleshed they practically breathe a no stock villains or pious heroines here. I'm becoming an evangelist for "The Help," Don't miss this wise and astonishing debut.a
