If you liked…The Help
Berg, Elizabeth. We Are All Welcome Here
The bestselling author of “The Art of Mending” and “The Year of Pleasures” follows the story of three women in 1965, Tupelo, Mississippi, each struggling against overwhelming odds for her own kind of freedom.
Briscoe, Connie. A Long Way from Home
Susie, her daughter Clara, and her granddaughter Susan are house slaves born and reared at Montpelier, the Virginia plantation of President James Madison. Three generations of proud, intelligent black women, they are united by love and a fierce desire for freedom that grows stronger year by year.
Grissom, Kathleen. The Kitchen House
Lavinia, a seven-year-old Irish orphan with no memory of her past, arrives on a tobacco plantation where she is put to work as an indentured servant. Placed with the slaves in the kitchen house under the care of Belle, the master’s illegitimate daughter, Lavinia becomes deeply bonded to her new adopted family, even though she is forever set apart from them by her white skin.
Hoffman, Beth. Saving CeeCee Honeycutt
Laugh-out-loud funny and deeply touching, Beth Hoffman’s sparkling debut is, as Kristin Hannah says, “packed full of Southern charm, strong women, wacky humor, and good old-fashioned heart.” It is a novel that explores the indomitable strengths of female friendship and gives us the story of a young girl who loses one mother and finds many others.
Hurston, Zora Neal. Their Eyes Were Watching God
Fair and long-legged, independent and articulate, Janie Crawford sets out to be her own person — no mean feat for a black woman in the ’30s. Janie’s quest for identity takes her through three marriages and into a journey back to her roots.
Kidd, Sue Monk. The Secret Life of Bees
A heartwarming coming of age tale set in 1960s South Carolina, a New York Times bestseller for more than 125 weeks, and a Good Morning America “Read This” pick.
Morrison, Toni. Sula
In clear, dark, resonant language, Nobel Prize winner Toni Morrison brilliantly evokes not only a bond between two lives, but the harsh, loveless, ultimately mad world in which that bond is destroyed, the world of the Bottom and its people.
  Walker, Alice. The Color Purple
An eloquent portrait of black women’s lives that are sustained by faith, love, and trust in the face of brutality, poverty, and racism.
