Racial Tensions….

The Help by Kathryn Stockett and Rainwater by Sandra Brown both illuminate the emotions surrounding racial tensions in the early part of the twentieth century. Although rather different in length and depth (The Help is quite a bit longer, but an engrossing read), they both touch a nerve. Each book has uniquely sketched characters that you truly feel connected to and can empathize with. Once you get to know the characters, let the stories take you completely into the heart of what it must have felt like to live in that era.
