"Err on the Side of Audacity" with THE INVENTION OF WINGS by Sue Monk Kidd
ERR ON THE SIDE OF LOVE
Well. This past week I had the pleasure of listening to a wonderful book THE INVENTION OF WINGS by Sue Monk Kidd. It's historical fiction about the real-life abolitionist Sarah Grimke and Hettie (Handful) Grimke, the slave girl Sarah was given on her 11th birthday, during early 19th century Charleston, SC.
I love this book. There's mothers and daughters and quilts and history and daring characters changing their own worlds as best they can. And young Sarah latches onto this advice: ERR ON THE SIDE OF AUDACITY.
I love it! Here's to audacious women!! I'm doing my best to be one. xo
