From the celebrated author of 'The Secret Life of Bees', comes a bestselling novel about two unforgettable American Women.
With incredible clarity and detail, 'The Invention of Wings' portrays the lives of a privileged young lady from Charleston, Sarah Grimke, and urban slave, Hetty "Handful" Grimke. Kidd’s sweeping novel is set in motion on Sarah’s eleventh birthday, when she is given ownership of ten year old Handful, who is to be her handmaid. We follow their remarkable journeys over the next thirty five years, as both strive for a life of their own, dramatically shaping each other’s destinies and forming a complex relationship marked by guilt, defiance, and the uneasy ways of love.
