    DescriptionFeaturing stunning narration by Octavia Spencer, winner of the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her outstanding performance in the movie adaptation of Kathryn Stockett's bestseller. Jackson, Mississippi, 1962. Aibileen is a black maid raising her seventeenth white child. Minny, Aibileen's best friend, is the sassiest woman in Mississippi: a wonderful cook with a gossip's tongue. Graduate Skeeter returns from college with ambitions, but her mother will not be happy until she's married. Although world's apart, Skeeter, Aibileen and Minny's lives converge over a project that will change the town of Jackson forever. A full cast of actors bring out the beauty of this inspirational story in one of the most acclaimed audiobooks of recent years. This recording is unabridged. Typically abridged audiobooks are not more than 60 per cent of the author's work and as low as 30 per cent with characters and plotlines removed.
