    In this smart, delicious novel by the best-selling author of The Friday Night Knitting Club, a celebrity chef shows her friends and family the joy of fulfillment - and manages to spice up her own life at the same time.

    Comfort Food is a light summer "read" that was enjoyable to listen to. I would have liked a little more character development of the daughters. They had the potential to be interesting characters to use as spin-off stories in the future.

    From the celebrated author of The Secret Life of Bees, a magnificent novel about two unforgettable American women. Writing at the height of her narrative and imaginative gifts, Sue Monk Kidd presents a masterpiece of hope, daring, the quest for freedom, and the desire to have a voice in the world - and it is now the newest Oprah’s Book Club 2.0 selection. Hetty “Handful” Grimke, an urban slave in early nineteenth century Charleston, yearns for life beyond the suffocating walls that enclose her within the wealthy Grimke household. The Grimke’s daughter, Sarah, has known from an early age she is meant to do something large in the world, but she is hemmed in by the limits imposed on women.

    What made the experience of listening to The Invention of Wings the most enjoyable?

    Just finished The Invention of Wings: A Novel by Sue Monk Kidd (author of The Secret Life of Bees). I LOVED this book and what a great read during Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday weekend! I have enjoyed Ms. Kidd's writing for over thirty years ....she first wrote short articles in Guideposts, moved on to wonderful books on spirituality and feminism and then to novels. This novel is based on two real women, the Grimke sisters. After having been raised in Charleston in a family of fourteen children, the sisters developed their anti-slavery views and became Quakers and active members of the abolitionist movement in the early part of the 19th century. Ms. Kidd adds a carefully crafted character who is a young woman owned by the Grimke family and that storyline interspersed with the real-life sisters produces powerful storytelling. Having been raised a Quaker, I particularly enjoyed visits with Lucretia Mott and discussions on John Woolman as integral parts of the story. Buy a copy, download it to your Kindle, or listen to it as an audiobook as I did and I think you'll be profoundly moved.
