Set in pre-Civil War North Carolina, Sue Monk Kidd’s The Invention of Wings is the tale of two women searching for freedom. Handful is a slave girl, the present to her mistress for an eleventh birthday gift. For her, it’s a matter of physical freedom. For her mistress, Sarah, it’s a matter of intellection and social expectation. Told from alternating points of view, each woman explores her limited world and the choices she must make to be happy.
