Synopsis
WARNING: This is not the actual book The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd. Do not buy this Review if you are looking for a full copy of this great book. The New York Times bestselling author Sue Monk Kidd does not disappoint with her latest piece of historical fiction The Invention of Wings, and you can read what the critics have to say in this comprehensive review. Find out who would like this novel and why it is a worthwhile read with the help of this companion review. Are you looking to improve your knowledge of slavery in America within a non-academic setting? Sue Monk Kidd's latest novel, The Invention of Wings, offers just that with detailed depictions of the South and North during the early 19th century. Kidd has selected two real women from America's history and fictionalized them as protagonists in her third novel. Sarah Grimké 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. Readers gain an insider's view of slavery, the abolitionist movement, and women's rights in The Invention of Wings. The book offers an ideal balance of emotional moments and action to entice any reader, while offering educational appeal within an engaging story of two historical women.
