For Telling Memories Among Southern Women, Mary Yelling interviewed about one-third of some 200 women who had the time and courage to talk to us about their memories of domestic workers and domestic work. As I said in the book, Mary's part was essential. As an African American woman, she was able to gain trust with current and former domestic workers in our racially divided society much more quickly than I, a white woman, could.

Purchased this after reading "The Help" and finding it was part of the research. The set-up is as you would expect the book from "The Help" to be, but reads more like a thesis. I would rather have read less of the author telling me what was upcoming and more of the women's actual words. There did seem to be more white women interviewees than I would have expected. Even so, I'm glad I read BOTH books; both have an insight into a practice I thought ended (but shamefully didn't) in the '40s or '50s.

I bought this when I finished reading THE HELP. It is starting out slow, so it is going to take me a while to read it.

I was hoping this book would read like the help, but it didn't. Was not a good pleasure read, but a good read if you are interested in the subject or doing research.

I was consistently being pulled between shame for being white and admiration toward the black women that endured our racist society. I would like all younger generations to have this as required reading in schools.

Purchased this book after it was referenced in The Help. I enjoyed the The Help and wanted to read more Southern non-fiction books. This book was fairly good and I enjoyed the first hand stories about life in the South. I didn't like that the way the book flowed from story to story. Overall, I felt it accurately portrayed Sothern women as strong and capable of facing obstacles.

I absolutely LOVED this book. The book is nonfiction accounts of both black domestic servants and their white employers. It was broken down into chapters which were topics with different women telling their stories about those topics. I highly recommend this book!!!

This book is excellent. It's one of the books the author of 'The Help' used for her own research. This book tells more of the true stories of the maids and other servants in the South years ago. Hopefully all still years ago! I recommend for anyone who enjoyed 'The Help' book and the movie.
