Living an involuntary hermit's life. Working towards living a healthier, gluten-free, hopefully cancer free life with my 2 dogs, 3 chickens and loving family.

Living with intention

When stumbling through life isn't good enough anymore..... decide to be yourself and enjoy life, and pay attention to Gods gifts all around.

The Help

A couple weeks ago, my friend Renee from Tallahassee started reading the book, The Help.  I thought I had never heard of it, but then I read an old post from a fellow blogger and realized I had, but it did not stick with me.  Last week, Renee gave a beautifully written review of the book.   Renee's review She writes much better than I so check it out. 

I downloaded this book on my e-reader and read it this weekend.  Which is saying something, because it is not a short read.  But it is when you get started, because if you are like me, you can't put it down.  You want to know what is going to happen next to these characters.  I will resist getting into details because as I said, Renee says it so much better.

This book has been made into a movie that will come out on August 12th.  I am posting a link below to the trailer.  Being a girl from the Northwest, I am a naive girl about the workings of such racism, but I am a history buff and well read in the civil rights movement.  So the book was fascinating.  Read Renee's review and then check out  trailer.The Help

I've got this reserved at the library - 4th in line - must be a good book with all out on reserves.
Thanks for heads up!
