The Invention of Wings - based on the real person, Sarah Grimke, the first abolitionist and women's rights advocate. Fascinating and lovely weaving of slavery and women's rights. Beautifully done, Sue Monk Kidd. Have read all her books. Highly recommend!!
"And though we can only work from our particular place, our given spot in the world, the particular can be a place of great power — the cry of the human heart and the yearning of the human spirit are, after all, universal."
