The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd

Book 15/30.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I realllllllyyyyyy debated on whether to rate this 3 or 4 stars, but at the end I settled on 4 stars and that was mostly due to the strength of Handful’s chapters. Sarah’s chapters were pretty strong at the beginning and end of the book, but the middle chapters when she was finding herself were too longwinded for my liking.

Another reason I rated this 4 stars is because I had never heard of Sarah Grimké before so it was enlightening to learn about the American abolitionist widely held to be the mother of the women’s suffrage movement. I always love when books educate me on something I had no idea about, or expand my knowledge on something I was only aware of at a surface level, and this was no exception.
