I enjoyed every moment listening to this book it was made even better knowing that the characters although partly fictional were based on real people.
If you enjoyed The Help or the colour purple you will enjoy this. The performance of the narrators was excellent and gave life to the story and all the different characters.

What did you love best about The Invention of Wings?
Both the theme of people able to see right from wrong against all odds in the society they have been brought up in and in spite of it ostracizing them within their family, friends and community at large, along with the strength and endurance of the spirit during unspeakable circumstances.
What did you like best about this story?
What does Jenna Lamia and Adepero Oduye bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
They both narrated beautifully but I particularly love to listen to Jenna Lamia; I've heard her narrate before and she is mesmerising. If I had read the book instead it would have been fabulous but I would have missed out on the pleasure of hearing both of their lovely voices.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The whole book moved me.
Any additional comments?
I loved The Secret Lives Of Bees but this was even better.

The writing was lovely and the story interesting, made more so that it is based on a true story of two Southern sisters who spent their lives campaigning against slavery and for the rights of women.
the performance of both barrators was superb as they truly brought the story to life.
