Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

A vivid, complex, carefully crafted, moving novel. Children's Book Review Service
The Logans's story will strengthen and satisfy all who read it. The Christian Science Monitor
This is fine writing, and readers will be moved by the intense drama of individual scenes and by their historical significance. School Library Journal
The fear, cruelty, and the bewildering injustice of a hopelessly racist society are transcended by a family's strength, self-respect, and determination. The characters, both young and old, in all their variety and individuality come alive with penetrating humanness, while the effect of the storytelling is intensified by a lean, understated style and made more poignant by touches of lyrical sensitivity. The Horn Book
A profoundly affecting novel. Publishers Weekly
Miss Taylor conveys the textures of life among black as well as white and writes not with rancor or bitterness over indignities but with pride, strength, and respect for humanity. The New York Times
