    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 did you love best about The Invention of Wings?

    The only reason I got this book was a reviewer said if you liked the Help, you'll like this one. Not even close…this is a historical novel but it was so fascinating it kept my attention throughout the whole book. Really nicely written and I didn't realize until the end when the author spoke that some of the events were fabricated a little, highly recommend this book.

    Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    Would you listen to The Witness again? Why?

    At first I didn't care for the "witness" voice but it really grows on you. I only listen to books in the car when I'm running errands and I found myself wanting to listen longer. It's a really good story and I love the characters. Brook's mother is a hoot.
