First Chapter, First Paragraph Tuesday

Hosted by Bibliophile by the Sea, every Tuesday I post the first paragraph of an novel I am reading or want to read. This week's paragraph is from 'The Help' by Kathryn Stockett, a novel I have wanted to read for a while, but only just acquired it:

' Mae Mobley was born on an early Sunday morning in August, 1960. A church baby we like to call it. Taking care a white babies, that's what I do, along with all the cooking and the cleaning. I done raising seventeen kids in my lifetime. I know how to get them babies to sleep, stop crying, and go to the toilet bowl before their mamas even get out a bed in the morning.'

'The Help'- Kathryn Stockett
