Gute Geister: Roman

Front Cover
It is 1963 in Mississippi. 22-year-old Skeeter has just returned home after graduating from Ole Miss. She may have a degree, but her mother will not be happy until Skeeter is married. Skeeter would normally find solace with her beloved maid Constantine, but Constantine has disappeared and no one will tell Skeeter where she has gone. Aibileen is a wise, regal black maid raising her seventeenth white child. Something shifted inside her after the death of her own son. She is devoted to the little girl she looks after, though she knows both their hearts may be broken. Minny, Aibileen's best friend, is short, fat, and an amazing cook, but she is also so sassy she has a hard time holding onto a job. Seemingly as different from one another as can be, these women will nonetheless come together for a clandestine project that will put them all at risk. A modern classic, The Help has been a cultural touchstone for millions of readers.
