Notes

Description
The story follows Hetty "Handful" Grimke, a Charleston slave, and Sarah, the daughter of the wealthy Grimke family. On Sarah's eleventh birthday she is given ownership over Handful, who is to be her handmaid. "The Invention of Wings" follows the next thirty-five years of their lives, and is inspired in part by the historical figure of Sarah Grimké (a feminist, suffragist and, importantly, an abolitionist).
