This book is definitely in my list for favourite books of all time. It teaches you about women, about the situation for African Americans in the southern states of America in the early 1960s, it teaches you about society and about humanity in general. I LOVE it.
That’s why I read it twice.
The characters are so clear and relatable. The plot is so smart and the author, although Caucasian, was actually raised by an African American maid herself.
Please read if you haven’t already, it’s a great summer read! And I found the movie to be a very good representation of the book surprisingly.
