Oh this was wonderful! I thought the story thoroughly captured the essence of both Celia and Minny. Thank you for writing this!

lol, this was great. really sounds like the way minny does in the book. although i thought celia would be a little less squeamish around diapers, seeing how in the movie she chops off a chicken's head and in the book she beats up a guy with a poker.

I love this so darn much!

I've only ever seen the movie (but planning to read the book!) and I felt that more focus should have been put on Celia, at least in the advertising campaign, which barely acknowledges the character's existence. I like that you made the Marilyn Monroe connection with her hair, because that's all I could think during the movie - how Celia had this wonderful vulnerable quality that practically drew you to her, just like Marilyn Monroe. :)

You captured Minny so well here, her brashness and protectiveness and man, the dialect was spot-on. I love it!

I never read this book or even heard of it, but your story is so good, that I don't need the reference of the book characters.

A sweet story of a white couple with a baby, the mother unsure of how to care for the baby at first and her reliance on the kindly black lady Minny who has had a lot of experience with babies and helps Celia learn how to take care of the baby.

Your dialect dialogue is great and you have successfully written the story from Minny's POV. This is so good, I don't know what to say!

The story of Celia, Johnny, Baby Johnny and Minny (is she the maid?) is just perfect...All the characters are described well and their dialogue and actions make sense.

Wonderful story...I love it!
