Two strong women characters dominate the latest novel by Sue Monk Kidd, “The Invention of Wings.” Her “Secret Life of Bees” was a runaway bestseller in 2003. Kidd examined different theories of feminist theology in that book. This time she focuses on a young girl, Sarah Grimke, and the girl given to her as a slave, “Handful.” The novel follows the course of their lives over the next few decades and the struggles they face during the 1800’s in Charleston.
