    Connie says: "Poor audio quality"
    "Great Stories - Terrible Sound"
    Overall

    I thoroughly enjoyed the stories in this book, and loved the reader. But the sound was quite muffled and hard to hear sometimes - like she was reading in a box.

    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.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Invention of Wings to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Invention of Wings?

    There were many memorable moments, most of which involved Charlotte's and Handfull's small and large acts of rebellion.

    The description of Charlotte making her story quilt, and what it meant to her and her family.
