The interpretation of The Story of An Hour can be taken in many different directions, all uniquely accurate in their own ways, because it was never set in stone as to what exactly was meant by her feelings and dialogue. The author gives one a peak into the life of a woman inside a troubled marriage, who stumbles across a tragedy that rocks her world. With only thoughts as to what she went through, what her scars were, and what exactly the author was trying to say, the story in its entirety is completely relative to how the reader

It generally gives no sense of what the story is about and is just plain confusing. However, I thought I may as well give it a go, because I have absolutely loved all of the upcoming Entangled Teen books. Despite my reservations, The Foxglove Killings nailed it.

After reading the first few chapter of The Help there were a few themes that stood out, a few of them being, love, society and class and most specifically oppression. The main character in this novel is Aibileen Clark, a 53 year old black woman who has spent almost her entire life caring for “white babies” and “cooking and cleaning” (1.1) for white families.
The memoir has a linear structure, going chronologically through her life. I felt like I was definitely more interested in her story as it went farther along, however there was never a spot where I wanted to stop reading. Her teenage years and on were quite gripping, seeing her coming into her own as a young woman while trying to keep the family together emotionally and economically. I cringed at times, and at others I was truly inspired by her unconditional love for her family even when they treated her so poorly. As the reader you can really see the strength she gained as a child and it inspires.
