The Invention of Wings; Sue Monk Kidd

Historical fiction novel about two sisters who grew up in a slave owning Charleston family in the early 1800’s and eventually became abolitionists in the North.  The novel goes back and forth between the point of view of the older sister, Sarah Grimke, and the slave, Hetty, that was given to Sarah as her personal slave on her 11th birthday.  Enjoyable book to read that I would recommend, yet another awful example of the history of our country.

PJH rating: ****
