The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd

The Invention of WingsThe Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Inspired by true sisters Sarah and Nina Grimske, considered to be the first women abolitionists and the first to speak out for women's rights.

They were born into a wealthy family in Charleston, parents were slave owners. Sarah was presented with her very own slave at the age of 11 and that event started her on the road to anti slavery.

A wonderful read. If you feel that the girls could have been braver, more forceful and stronger during the first parts of the book, remember that women didn't rights, nor were they entitled to a voice. These all had to be fought for.
