The Book of Longings

Don’t shy away from this historical fiction page-turner thinking that it falls into the inspirational genre.

The Invention of Wings

An exceptional audiobook—this story is not to be missed. ["This richly imagined narrative brings both black history and women's history to life with an unsentimental story of women who became sisters under the skin," read the starred review of the Viking hc, LJ 11/1/13; see the Q&A with author Kidd on this page.]

The Invention of Wings

This richly imagined narrative brings both black history and women's history to life with an unsentimental story of two women who became sisters under the skin—Handful, a slave in body whose mind roves freely and widely, and "owner" Sarah, whose mind is shackled by family and society.
