The Help by Kathryn Stockett
Southern whites' guilt for not expressing gratitude to the black maids who raised them threatens to become a familiar refrain.

In a book that brings new resonance to the moral issues involved, she spins a story of social awakening as seen from both sides of the American racial divide.
