The Invention of Wings chosen for March Book Club

Join the discussion on Tuesday, March 13, 2018, 6:00 PM at Taj Palace, 2710 Nob Hill Blvd., Yakima of The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd. Monk Kidd’s sweeping novel is set in motion on Sarah’s eleventh birthday, when she is given ownership of ten year old Handful, who is to be her handmaid. We follow their remarkable journeys over the next thirty five years, as both strive for a life of their own, dramatically shaping each other’s destinies and forming a complex relationship marked by guilt, defiance, estrangement and the uneasy ways of love. This exquisitely written novel is a triumph of storytelling that looks with unswerving eyes at a devastating wound in American history . . (description excerpted from Inklings website)
