Invention of Wings – Sue Monk Kidd


Fascinating fictional account of the lives of one of the earliest female abolitionists and women’s The-Invention-of-Wingsright activists – Sarah Grinke – and her sister Angelina.

What I really enjoyed about this novel, was that this was a part of American history I absolutely no knowledge of and that I have been encouraged to read further into the lives of the Grimke sisters.

Double narrators – Sarah Grimke and a family slave – Handful – provide dual perspectives to the events that unfold in the novel.

Very good reading!
