But let’s go back to the story.
Usual daily routine of sleepy suburbs of Jackson welcomes the reader. Aibileen, black maid and her black friend named Minny are best friends.
Working hard in the houses of white ladies during their days and sharing their no easy life stories in the evenings. It seems there are no chances for them to break out of this circle.
Skeeter, young lady which returns back home after her studies in college, has another opinion. She is about to change the course of things happening in Jackson.
No more disrespect. No more sneering.
But how is it possible for one young woman to change something that is rooted so deep in minds of people? Even black maids are suspicious about Skeeter. But she has a plan.
Good portion of courage to think different, persistence to follow you dreams and… a bit of impertinence where it is necessary.
The Help is the story that leads us through the labyrinths of human stereotypes. No matter their color, both, white and black, characters of this book were against young Skeeter’s will of changes. However, once first step is made big things begin to happen.
Isn’t this how our lives go? What was impossible yesterday is already here today. Just like those magic stories waiting around the corner.
