July’s pick for book club was “The Help” by Kathryn Stockett. It was full of rich characters – three of whom we see the story unfold through and around which in the beginning was hard to follow until I could figure out who was who. This book was, for me, a fresh perspective on civil rights painted by those who lived in Mississippi in the 1960’s without being tragic or preachy. I simply loved this book. Once in a while a book comes along and actually lives up to the hype it is given – this is one of those times! Highly recommended…
