Overview

Skeeter, de veintidós años, ha regresado a su casa en Jackson, en el sur de Estados Unidos, tras terminar sus estudios en la Universidad de Mississippi. Pero como estamos en 1962, su madre no descansará hasta que no vea a su hija con una alianza en la mano.Aibileen es una criada negra. Una mujer sabia e imponente que ha criado a diecisiete niños blancos. Tras perder a su propio hijo, que murió mientras sus capataces blancos miraban hacia otro lado, siente que algo ha cambiado en su interior. Se vuelca en la educación de la pequeña niña que tiene a su cargo, aunque es consciente de que terminarán separándose con el tiempo.Minny, la mejor amiga de Aibileen, es bajita, gordita y probablemente la mujer con la lengua más larga de todo Mississippi. Cocina como nadie, pero no puede controlar sus palabras, así que pierde otro empleo. Por fin parece encontrar su sitio trabajando para una recién llegada a la ciudad que todavía no conoce su fama.A pesar de lo distintas que son entre sí, estas tres mujeres acabarán juntándose para llevar a cabo un proyecto clandestino que supondrá un riesgo para todas. ¿Y por qué? Porque se ahogan dentro de los límites que les impone su ciudad y su tiempo. Y, a veces, las barreras están para saltárselas.Un libro inolvidable que se ha convertido en un éxito gracias al boca-oreja de los lectores.

    Really enjoyed

    As with most books turned into movies, I never know if I should read the book first or watch the movie. I was glad I watched the movie first with this one.
