The Invention of Wings

Sue Monk Kidd's award-winning novel The Secret Life of Bees has sold more than six million copies in the U.S., was a major motion picture, and has been translated into 36 languages. Her follow up novel, The Mermaid Chair, was a #1 New York Times bestseller. Now, she is back with a triumph of storytelling that tackles one of the most devastating wounds in American history. The Invention of Wings confronts the brutal reality of slavery and its lingering effect on modern society. At the same time, she brings the unique narrative of the first female abolitionists and their demand for emancipation, as well as their pioneering fight for women's rights, inspired in part by the historical figure, Sarah Grimké. 

Writing at the height of her narrative and imaginative gifts, Kidd's novel about two unforgettable women is a masterpiece of hope, daring, the quest for freedom, and the desire to have a voice in the world. She shares a greater understanding of what it was like to be powerless, whether as a slave or as a woman, before either had the most basic rights.
