"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."

Maybe you read Mildred D. Taylor's series, including "Roll of Thunder, Hear Me Cry," in upper elementary or middle school? Or shared the books with your students? Ms. Taylor returns to expand on the story of the Logan family in this Teen book. Cassie is now a young woman, and we as the readers experience the fight for Civil Rights in Mississippi along with her, and her family. Great introduction to this period of history!

Mildred Taylor has done it again! In her last book in the Logan saga, "All the Days Past, All the Days To Come", Mrs. Taylor brilliantly weaves together the past and present and draws to a conclusion the amazing story of the Logan family. In this final book, we follow Cassie, in her adult life, from Ohio, California, Boston and back home to Mississippi. Cassie never forgot her roots. With law now as her profession, Cassie embarks on the task of voter registration and the fight for civil rights. Many actual incidents of the civil rights movement are included. For those of us waiting a long time for this book, we are definitely not disappointed. It was well worth the wait. What a gift Mrs. Taylor has given us. Mrs. Taylor recently in 2020 received the American Library Association's very prestigious Virginia Hamilton Award for Lifetime Achievement. This is awarded to an African American author for significant and lasting literary contribution to children and/or young adults. I could not be happier!! Well done, Mrs. Taylor, Well done!
