After my book club read "The Invention of Wings" by Sue Monk Kidd, I was curious to learn more about the Grimke sisters. This book did the job.

The Grimke sisters were indeed gutsy; southern born women who rebelled against slavery and took to the northern hustings to make their case. Gerda Lerner has done a splendid job of mapping their story.
