The newest Oprah’s Book Club 2.0 selection: this special eBook edition of The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd features exclusive content, including Oprah’s personal notes highlighted within the text, and a reading group guide. 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. Please note there is another digital edition available without Oprah’s notes. Go to Oprah.com/bookclub for more OBC 2.0 content

Based on the memoirs and biographies of dozens of women who risked their lives working underground to subvert the most terrifying war machine in modern history, From the Wings is a novel of courage, sacrifice, and perseverance in the face of death. When Hitler's troops storm France, an American woman is forced to face the fact that the future she'd envisioned no longer exists. Hoping to distance herself from her former life as Broadway actress, Eve Sands, she joins the International Red Cross and sails to England. Aboard ship, Eve overhears a frightening exchange between two men plotting to sabotage British tank deployments in North Africa...an experience that ultimately catapults her into the shadowy depths of war-torn Europe where the art of the ruse is the only defense against sudden death. When not working a regular job in a London hospital, Eve adopts clever disguises and personalities to courier diamonds to various networks of the Resistance. In this role, she's joined by a remarkable cast: a German Jew with a gift for impersonation; a Special Operations assistant to Winston Churchill; a Russian pilot known as "The White Rose of Stalingrad;" the indomitable Sisters of Saint Lorraine, who run their Paris convent as a safe house right under the noses of the Nazis; and, a British factory owner whose total devotion to the cause makes everything possible. From the Wings is the extraordinary story of one woman's fight to reinvent her life, even as she fights to save the lives of people she will never know.

Tidi is a larking little angel visiting the celestial school for guardian angels in order to become a guardian angel for children on Earth. He loves children more than anything! Although he‘s an eager pupil, he‘s also full of pranks and ideas. Saint Peter, the heavenly gatekeeper, can tell a story or two about that! Still, he can never hold a grudge against his „scallywag“, especially since Tidi always paints pretty pictures to make up for his mischief. Tidi can‘t wait to protect a child on Earth. But when Tidi becomes the cause for a terrible mishap, the heavenly authorities harbour serious doubts. Is it appropriate to send Tidi down to Earth already? Will he be able to cope with looking after a child? These concerns grow when Tidi makes it his mission to make The Good Lord laugh. He even dares to defy Master Rigoroso from the highest heavenly authorities when being reprimanded. That has serious consequences! In the end, everything turns out completely different – even for Tidi ... „Stubborn With a Pair of Wings“ is a humorous story, invigorating yet profound, not only for children but also for adults. This book will inspire children, parents and grandparents alike. And those who weren‘t keen on angels before will surely be captivated by the little heavenly scallywag‘s charm.
