The Invention of Wings | by Sue Monk Kidd

the invention of wings“The Invention of Wings” is a beautiful tale of self-discovery for Sarah Grimke and her handmaid, Hetty. Kidd brings her silky prose from the early 19th century in Charleston, SC. Sarah Grimke, and her sister, Angelina, were cornerstones of the abolition and women’s rights movements, and this fictional look into their childhood and coming-of-age years is emotional and empowering. Kidd writes with knowledge, poetry and lovely Southern dialect while covering the gruesome and tragic subject of slavery and human rights in the old South. Truly a fantastic book.
