I am super excited to share the cover of Sue Monk Kidd's newest book THE INVENTION OF WINGS due to be released January 7, 2014!!! THE INVENTION OF WINGS tells the entwined stories of Hetty “Handful” Grimke, an urban slave in early 19th century Charleston, who yearns for life beyond the suffocating walls of the wealthy Grimke household and the Grimke's daughter, Sarah, a real-life historical figure, who grows up to become a leading abolitionist and women's rights pioneer. Kidd goes beyond the record to flesh out the rich interior lives of all of her characters, both real and invented. Doesn't this sound amazing!!!
Sue Monk Kidd's first novel, The Secret Life of Bees spent more than 175 weeks on the New York Times trade paperback bestseller list, has sold more than six million copies in the United States, and has been translated into thirty-six languages and was turned into an award-winning major motion picture. Her second novel, The Mermaid Chair, was a number one New York Times bestseller.
