Find out who would like this novel and why it is a worthwhile read with the help of this companion review. Kidd has selected two real women from America's history and fictionalized them as protagonists in her third novel. Sarah Grimke comes from a wealthy white family and struggles with the justifications of slavery from the young age of 11. She befriends a slave named Handful who was presented to her as a gift, and together they form convictions and strive for freedom.
Listeners gain an insider's view of slavery, the abolitionist movement, and women's rights in The Invention of Wings. The New York Times best-selling author Sue Monk Kidd does not disappoint with her latest piece of historical fiction, and you can listen to what the critics have to say in this comprehensive review. The Invention of Wings offers an ideal balance of emotional moments and action to entice any listener, while offering educational appeal within an engaging story of two historical women.

Not worth the $3.00
Lots of minutes wasted in suggesting other reviews by this company, then in very general information about the book. Only a few minutes are spent in specific reviewing. Possibly these reviews are written by middle or high schoolers. (?). You can find the general information on Wikipedia. Don’t waste your money.
