30 Day Book Challenge-Day 6

The Help - Kathryn Stockett, Adriana Colombo, Paola Frezza Pavese

The Challenge is on!  Basing my responses on my last year of reading...since I have a good record of those. The mind is not what it used to be! So...

 

DAY 6 - A book that makes you sad

 

I think for this selection I may have to go out further than my last year of reading and select The Help.  I loved this book but like many books set during this period of American History, I am just saddened by how we treated and continue to treat folks who are different from ourselves.  For this book specifically, an African American woman would be hired to care for and essentially raise (and in turn love) your child but is unfit to use the same toilet.  That kind of thinking is just mind boggling and I would hope that I would have seen things as Skeeter had.
