Book Review: The Help

After a few false starts, I just finished The Help by Kathryn Stockett.  Although it took me more time than usual to get into the story, by the halfway mark I couldn't put it down. 

The Help was a fantastic story about the Civil Rights Movement told by a group of women living in Mississippi in the 1960's.  It gives a brilliant and thought provoking look at the moral and ethical implications of pre and post-movement race relations. 

I love the feeling of finishing a good book and being satisfied of the time you devoted to the process.  The hard part is finding a new story to captivate your attention as much as the last one did.  The search is on.  Any recommendations?
