The Help is the phenomenal international bestseller (that inspired the Oscar nominated film) by Kathryn Stockett.
Enter a vanished and unjust world: Jackson, Mississippi, 1962.
Where black maids raise white children, but aren't trusted not to steal the silver...There's Aibileen, raising her seventeenth white child and nursing the hurt caused by her own son's tragic death; Minny, whose cooking is nearly as sassy as her tongue; and white Miss Skeeter, home from College, who wants to know why her beloved maid has disappeared.
Skeeter, Aibileen and Minny. No one would believe they'd be friends; fewer still would tolerate it.
But as each woman finds the courage to cross boundaries, they come to depend and rely upon one another.
Each is in a search of a truth. And together they have an extraordinary story to tell...Penguin by Hand is a collection comprising six of Penguin's most popular women's fiction titles of recent years, all with new and beautiful craft-inspired jackets.
