Besides the traditional family turkey, the other high point of my Thanksgiving weekend was a book called The Help by K. Stockett. These days, it seems I am the last one to hear of any good "reads", but this one was was gripping. It is sort of an upstairs/downstairs story set in Jackson, Mississippi during the civil rights era. The wonderful, brave women described in this story manage to overcome social injustice of both the racial and Jr. League varieties.

I highly recommend The Help by K. Stockett!
