The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd Summary

From the celebrated author of The Secret Life of Bees and the forthcoming novel The Book of Longings, a 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. 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. 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. As the stories build to a riveting climax, Handful will endure loss and sorrow, finding courage and a sense of self in the process. Sarah will experience crushed hopes, betrayal, unrequited love, and ostracism before leaving Charleston to find her place alongside her fearless younger sister, Angelina, as one of the early pioneers in the abolition and women’s rights movements. Inspired by the historical figure of Sarah Grimke, Kidd goes beyond the record to flesh out the rich interior lives of all of her characters, both real and invented, including Handful’s cunning mother, Charlotte, who courts danger in her search for something better. This exquisitely written novel is a triumph of storytelling that looks with unswerving eyes at a devastating wound in American history, through women whose struggles for liberation, empowerment, and expression will leave no reader unmoved.

De l’autre côté du Jourdain by Margaret Laurence Summary

Ghana, 1956. Nous sommes à la veille de l’indépendance. Nathaniel Amegbe est professeur dans une école ghanéenne plutôt médiocre. Johnnie Kestoe est comptable dans une firme textile britannique à Accra. Les deux hommes s’affronteront autour de la question de l’« africanisation », cette politique de passation des responsabilités entre Britanniques et Ghanéens. De l’autre côté du Jourdain est le premier roman de Margaret Laurence, cette matriarche de la littérature. Cette traduction est une invitation à découvrir une facette méconnue de l’œuvre d’une grande écrivaine qui, pendant son séjour en Afrique de 1950 à 1956, a su capter tout l’espoir et les bouleversements imposés par les indépendances africaines à l’ordre du monde. Mais avant tout, il s’agit d’une invitation à découvrir une Afrique fébrile, des personnages attachants, le tout écrit avec un talent incontestable, dans une pluralité de voix à couper le souffle. Réflexion sur l’indépendance, tant intérieure que politique, De l’autre côté du Jourdain annonçait déjà les grands romans emblématiques de Laurence, dont, L’ange de pierre et Les devins.

This dramatic story follows the lives of Sarah Grimké and Hetty “Handful” Grimké. Sarah is the daughter of a slaveholding family; Hetty is one of the family’s slaves. In this novel, Monk Kidd contrasts the different worlds these two characters inhabit, even though they are part of the same household.

On her eleventh birthday, Sarah is presented with a gift, a slave girl named Hetty Grimké. Hetty was plucked from the family’s slave quarters, separated from her mother, and is now expected to be Sarah’s personal slave and companion. Sarah knows her refusal to accept Hetty as a gift will bring about much trouble. On the other hand, Sarah personally abhors slavery and knows she cannot accept Hetty...
