On Saturday afternoon my husband and I watched the film The Help.
The Help is set in the 1960s America during the regrettable time of real racial discrimination. The film looks at the relationships between the white female house wives and their black female domestic employee. Even though the film depicts the realities of the life ‘the help’ would of experienced the film is also extremely funny, putting a smile on the face of the viewer a midst the cruel history which happened in the life time of many people today only over 50 years ago.
After watching The Help and realising that this powerful film was based on a book I decided to order this on Amazon before Church on Sunday. The amazing thing was that the book arrived this morning!
Already I have begun reading the book and just love that the way the characters spoke in the film is how the book is written. I know that it will be a book that I will find very difficult to put down… Makes me want to start a book club!
Happy Monday Friends!
