Summary
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.

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.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Taylor completes her monumental saga of the Logan family of Mississippi that began with her first novel, Song of the Trees (1975). This concluding volume finds Black protagonist Cassie now a 19-year-old college student in the early 1940s, and Taylor sweepingly charts Cassie's life in the years to come. She relocates from Mississippi to Toledo, Ohio, where her brother, Stacey, has moved as part of the Great Migration. She then moves to California, where she falls in love and marries. Pregnant, she experiences twin tragedies that propel her to law school. Graduating, she joins a white law firm in Boston where the (white) son of one of the partners falls in love with her and proposes, raising the issue of interracial marriage. Having now reached the '60s, Cassie joins the civil rights movement to her peril. Obviously, her story is paradigmatic, a brilliant dramatization of Black life in America during the 1940s, '50s, and '60s. Taylor is unsparing in her depiction of the years of segregation and of the Black experience of white racism, bigotry, and injustice. Written in a spare, unadorned style that matches the material and propels the narrative forward, this never-didactic book is irresistibly readable, while the richly realized, highly empathic characters are unforgettable. Taylor's remarkable novel is, in sum, that rare exception: an absolutely indispensable book.--Michael Cart Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "This absorbing historical novel concludes the five-volume story of the Logan family, which began in 1975 with Song of the Trees, followed by the Newbery Award--winner Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry. Here, narrator Cassie, now a grown woman, describes an era of sweeping social change, which begins with the post-WWII Great Migration north and culminates with the civil rights movement. Cassie's struggles and joys are decidedly adult, as she graduates from college and moves to Toledo to live with her brother's family, seeks work in California, marries and becomes a widow, and eventually decides to fulfill a childhood dream of becoming a lawyer, a profession she eventually employs to register black voters in her home state of Mississippi. 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. A memorable heroine and her keen sense of injustice propel this satisfying conclusion to a landmark family saga. Ages 14--up. (Jan.)"
