|Summary, etc.:|| "The story follows Hetty 'Handful' Grimke, a Charleston slave, and Sarah, the daughter of the wealthy Grimke family. The novel begins on Sarah's eleventh birthday, when she is given ownership over Handful, who is to be her handmaid. "The Invention of Wings" follows the next thirty-five years of their lives. Inspired in part by the historical figure of Sarah Grimke (a feminist, suffragist and, importantly, an abolitionist), Kidd allows herself to go beyond the record to flesh out the inner lives of all the characters, both real and imagined"-- Provided by publisher.
Eleven-year-old Sarah Grimke can't believe she got a handmaid for her birthday, and she's even more appalled when her slave-owning parents refuse to take their gift back. So begins the journey of an urban slave and the girl who taught her to read and write, their tenuous relationship following them as they seek their own new lives through nearly four decades after Sarah's birthday in 1803 Charleston.
