Friday Books -The Invention of Wings

The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd: beautifully-written book about two sisters who are in a slave-holding family. They are wonderfully strong, intelligent, and independent. Way ahead of their time! Also tells the story of a couple of the slave women. At the end the reader is told which parts of the story were true... the two southern white women are historical figures I had never heard of!

Deep, fascinating story I am so glad I read. I've been thinking a lot about it since I put it down.
