Product Details

Praise

“Cassie recounts harrowing events during late 1941. An engrossing picture of fine young people endeavoring to find the right way in a world that persistently wrongs them.”—Kirkus Reviews

“An enlightening, moving novel.”—Publishers Weekly

“Mildred D. Taylor’s novels about the Logan family have been hugely popular for two good reasons: They bring alive a fragment of the history of black life in the Deep South… [and] paint an appealingly detailed picture of the warm family relations and the embracing communal spirit to remind us that black life, day to day, however troubled, is not the disaster it looks like when it is simplified by sociology. There is pleasure, dignity, and palpable pride in Great Faith, near Strawberry, Miss., where the Logans are landowners with a fierce attachment to their own soil.”—The New York Times

“Powerful, readable, and fast-moving.”—VOYA

“This is a dramatic, painful book.”—School Library Journal

“A powerful…picture of the racist menace in pre-civil rights days.”—Booklist
