The No. 1 New York Times bestseller. THE INVENTION OF WINGS by Sue Monk
Kidd was selected as an Oprah Book Club 2.0 pick on December 10, 2013. From
the celebrated author of the international bestseller The Secret Life of
Bees comes an extraordinary novel about two exceptional women. Sarah Grimke
is the middle daughter. The one her mother calls difficult and her father
calls remarkable. On Sarah's eleventh birthday, Hetty 'Handful' Grimke is
taken from the slave quarters she shares with her mother, wrapped in
lavender ribbons, and presented to Sarah as a gift. Sarah knows what she
does next will unleash a world of trouble. She also knows that she cannot
accept. And so, indeed, the trouble begins ...A powerful, sweeping novel,
inspired by real events, and set in the American Deep South in the
nineteenth century, THE INVENTION OF WINGS evokes a world of shocking
contrasts, of beauty and ugliness, of righteous people living daily with
cruelty they fail to recognise; and celebrates the power of friendship and
sisterhood against all the odds.
