The Invention of Wings
powerful story about the relationship between Sarah Grimké and her household
slave, Hetty—known around the Grimké estate as Handful for
her rebellious disposition—explores the rigid social order of early-19th-century
Charleston, South Carolina, and the two girls' search for freedom. "It is
impossible to read this book and not come away thinking differently about our
status as women and about all the unsung heroines who play a role in getting us
to where we are," Oprah said after picking the novel as the third selection
for Oprah's Book Club 2.0.
