Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Help (Taschenbuch)
"Get the house straightened up and then go and fix some of that chicken salad."
These were the days when white people treated their black servants like slaves. They never ate the same food, they had to work long tough hours doing housekeeping and cooking to boot. train their children, and not to forget to use the outside bathroom.
These families will continue to do this until the day when one of their white daughters Skeeter returns to her parents' home and decides to evaluate these 'working' conditions.
It hurts her to see how they treat the help and she sets up a meeting with the staff from various households to have them have their say.
And a lot is said.
Between Abilene, Skeeter and Minnie, the wheels start rolling and everything come out in the wash.
This book will set you to thinking as it did the families, who when were awakened looked at the consequence as an act of betrayal.
