Invention of wings

This book was written well with characters well fleshed out. However it was a book that did not speak to me personally. The main character was a type of woman that I cannot readily identify with. Her mother was even worse. And the Black women were a bit unbelievable . Nevertheless it was a good read and held my interest. A total women's lib book. I like a bit more romance!
