About this book
Amidst the turbulence of the Civil Rights movement, 3 Mississippi women quietly start their own revolution with a book, some toilets and a chocolate pie. This book has the makings of a real word-of-mouth bestseller, and should be a reading group favourite. 'Daring, vitally important and very courageous. I loved and admired "The Help". Fantastic' Marian Keyes
Enter a vanished and unjust world: Jackson, Mississippi, 1962. Where black maids raise white children, but aren't trusted not to steal the silver... There's Aibileen, raising her seventeenth white child and nursing the hurt caused by her own son's tragic death; and, Minny, whose cooking is nearly as sassy as her tongue.
