Abstract:

It is 1963 in Mississippi. 22-year-old Skeeter has just returned home after graduating from Ole Miss. She may have a degree, but her mother will not be happy until Skeeter is married. Skeeter would normally find solace with her beloved maid Constantine, but Constantine has disappeared and no one will tell Skeeter where she has gone. Aibileen is a wise, regal black maid raising her seventeenth white child. Something shifted inside her after the death of her own son. She is devoted to the little girl she looks after, though she knows both their hearts may be broken. Minny, Aibileen's best friend, is short, fat, and an amazing cook, but she is also so sassy she has a hard time holding onto a job. Seemingly as different from one another as can be, these women will nonetheless come together for a clandestine project that will put them all at risk. A modern classic, The Help has been a cultural touchstone for millions of readers.

As of the release of this deluxe edition in October 27, 2011, over 3 million copies had already sold of this #1 New York Times bestseller. The Help had been on bestseller lists for longer than any other hardcover fiction title since The Da Vinci Code, was USA Today's 2009 Book of the Year, and has been published in thirty-seven countries around the world. The movie The Help, produced by DreamWorks and 1492 Pictures, was released in August 2011.

This beautiful, deluxe gift edition, destined to be passed down from generation to generation, is filled with special features, including a satin ribbon marker, printed endpapers, cloth case, and two-color interior printing.--Provided by publisher.
