The Help is not a story for easily offended readers.  Taking place in the tense and violent era of the Civil Rights Movement, The Help weaves together the lives of three ordinary women: one fighting for women's rights, one fighting for human rights, and one fighting for the freedom to love.  Set against a backdrop of hate and hate crimes, these three women's lives demonstrate the power self-worth and hope.  And the power of telling your story, as truly and as honestly as you are able. 

(Kristin Roper, Colorado Blue Spruce Award nominee, 2014)
