The Help by Kathryn Stockett

Stockett has written a thought provoking novel of Mississippi (and the South) in the 1960s.  Of major interest is the relationships between white families and their black maids.  There are also plenty of troubled relationships between the white women to stimulate the reader's thoughts.  Having grown up in Washington State, this book was an eye opener for me.
This would be a great book for book groups.  It's long (451 pages) but well worth the reading.
