The Help

Down on the allotment for the first time this year and resumed listening to The Help. Abline is now helping to write the story of coloured people during difficult social times. It makes me feel very apprehensive about what might happen to her if anyone finds out. I also think that people like her are very brave and I question whether I could have been so brave, I doubt it.

Now up to the point where things might begin to go wrong. In her haste to get home and not incur her mothers wrath Skeeter has forgotten her bag containing all the notes from her interviews. The setting up of this was a bit predictable.

Skeeter now has a love interest.

Many of the arguments put forward by some of the dreadful people for keeping coloured people down are very familiar. ~This fills me with disappointment ~ I realise that things have n’t really altered and similar reasons are used to keep people down.

Most of allotment frozen but managed to dig in a small area. Frozen feet and squishy mud shortened the visit.


About booksfrommybookshelf

I am a passionate reader of children's books (Primary aged) with a particular interest in picture books. I am always on the look out for children's books at are written by authors from other countries. I am also keen on technology and try to keep abreast of what is happening in a fast changing world. At present my day job is to support teachers and local authorities in the Yorkshire and Humber region (UK), which I really enjoy. Another aspect of my work is to present nationally developed work for the National Strategies. With economic cuts my job will terminate in Spring next year and I may be carrying out independent work based around high quality picture books. My other interest include my allotment, knitting and last but not least my family. My Twitter name is Orlama.
