This is the most recent book Taylor wrote, but it is actually the first chronologically of the Logan family saga. I teach Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry to my 8th graders, and before I read any Mildred Taylor, I mentally groaned at thought of teaching her books. I'm not sure why, but I had a negative impression of her novels for some reason. I was wrong. Her books are amazing and this one is no exception.
