Over my Christmas break, I spent a lot of time in airports, on airplanes and in rental cars. I passed the time reading The Help by Kathryn Stockett. (I bolded the title instead of underlined because I don't seem to have that option on Blogger.)
This was one of the best books I've read in a good while. It's set in Jackson, Mississippi in the early 1960s, and revolves around several black housekeepers and the white ladies that they work for.
It was thoroughly entertaining. And for what it's worth, I highly recommend it!
