The saga of the Logan family--made famous in the Newbery Medal-winning Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry--concludes in a long-awaited and deeply fulfilling story. In her tenth book, Mildred Taylor completes her sweeping saga about the Logan family of Mississippi, which is also the story of the civil rights movement in America of the 20th century. Cassie Logan, first met in Song of the Trees and Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry, is a young woman now, searching for her place in the world, a journey that takes her from Toledo to California, to law school in Boston, and, ultimately, in the 60s, home to Mississippi to participate in voter registration. She is witness to the now-historic events of the century: the Great Migration north, the rise of the civil rights movement, preceded and precipitated by the racist society of America, and the often violent confrontations that brought about change. Rich, compelling storytelling is Ms. Taylor's hallmark, and she fulfills expectations as she brings to a close the stirring family story that has absorbed her for over forty years. It is a story she was born to tell.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A heart-stopping plot about a character whose life has always been defined by her family and their land. In this Logan swan song, Taylor is at her best. Surely the crown jewel of the Logan family saga.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Narrator Allyson Johnson…warmly welcomes listeners as if inviting them to sit by the fire to hear this family story…The drama of the plot and the depth of the characterizations ensure that this audiobook is unforgettable. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“Taylor deftly sketches the strong characters of this tight-knit, though increasingly far-flung, family, and offers insights into seismic social movements and systematic oppression in the grim realities of racism faced by the family.” Publishers Weekly
“Taylor is unsparing in her depiction of the years of segregation and of the Black experience of white racism, bigotry, and injustice…This never-didactic book is irresistibly readable.” Booklist
