The Invention of Wings - Sue Monk Kidd


We're asked to believe that the 11-year-old daughter of a slave owner, brought up in that strict culture with no outside influences, is an abolitionist. A modern mind in an historical body doesn't quite ring true, and many of the characters are ciphers. But get past that and it's an engaging, if rather educational, story of a shameful past, certainly better than Monk Kidd's previous novel.
