(Original Publisher's Edition-No Annotations) ✝ Kindle Author Sue Monk Kidd ⇽ In the early 1830s, Sarah Grimk and her younger sister, Angelina, were the most infamous women in America They had rebelled so vocally against their family, society, and their religion that they were reviled, pursued, and exiled from their home city of Charleston, South Carolina, under threat of death Their crime was speaking out in favor of liberty and equality and for African American slaves and women, arguments too radically humanist even for the abolitionists of their time Their lectures drew crowds of thousands, even shockingly, then men, and their most popular pamphlet directly inspired Harriet Beecher Stowes Uncle Tom s Cabin published 15 years later These women took many of the first brutal backlashes against feminists and abolitionists, but even their names are barely known now Sue Monk Kidd became fascinated by these sisters, and the question of what compelled them to risk certain fury and say with the full force of their convictions what others had not or could not She discovered that in 1803, when Sarah turned 11, her parents gave her the human present of 10 year old Hetty to be her handmaid, and Sarah taught Hetty to read, an act of rebellion met with punishment so severe that the slave girl died of an unspecified disease shortly after her beating Kidd knew then that she had to try to bring Hetty back to life I would imagine what might have been, she tells us , and she starts these girls stories here, both cast in roles they despise She trades chapters between their voices across decades, imagining the Grimk sisters courageous metamorphosis and, perhaps vitally, she gives Hetty her own life of struggle and transformation Few characters have ever been so alive to me as Hetty and Sarah Long after you finish this book, you ll feel its courageous heart beating inside your own Mari MalcolmStarred Review Inspired by the true story of early nineteenth century abolitionist and suffragist Sarah Grimk, Kidd paints a moving portrait of two women inextricably linked by the horrors of slavery Sarah, daughter of a wealthy South Carolina plantation owner, exhibits an independent spirit and strong belief in the equality of all Thwarted from her dreams of becoming a lawyer, she struggles throughout life to find an outlet for her convictions Handful, a slave in the Grimk household, displays a sharp intellect and brave, rebellious disposition She maintains a compliant exterior, while planning for a brighter future Told in first person, the chapters alternate between the two main characters perspectives, as we follow their unlikely friendship characterized by both respect and resentment from childhood to middle age While their pain and struggle cannot be equated, both women strive to be set freeSarah from the bonds of patriarchy and Southern bigotry, and Handful from the inhuman bonds of slavery Kidd is a master storyteller, and, with smooth and graceful prose, she immerses the reader in the lives of these fascinating women as they navigate religion, family drama, slave revolts, and the abolitionist movement HIGH DEMAND BACKSTORY Beginning
