"[A] story with heart and hope...A good old fashioned novel"—New York Daily News

"The Help by Kathryn Stockett is a story that made me weep as I rejoiced for each of humanity's small but steady triumphs over hate and fear. I will never forget this wonderful book."—Dorothea Benton Frank

"It's graceful and real, a compulsively readable story of three women who watch the Mississippi ground shifting beneath their feet as the words of men like Martin Luther King Jr. and Bob Dylan pervade their genteel town. When folks at your book club wonder what to read next month, go on and pitch this wholly satisfying novel with confidence. A-"—Entertainment Weekly

"This heartbreaking story is a stunning debut from a gifted talent."—Atlanta Journal
