The third book of the Logan family series, now all the kids are grown up and seeking jobs and finishing their schooling. Cassie Logan and her brothers still stay strong with the help of their family and the land that kept them undefeated from the other white landowners in Mississippi. This books was extremely good because now, Cassie and her brothers, and best friends have matured into young adults, and are more aware of the hardships that they face in this world. Even though they try to avoid it, it always seem to catch up with them one way or another. When Cassie's best friend Moe attacks three white men with a crowbar after humiliating him and degrading Cassie (who he is secretly in love with), Stacy,Clarence,Little Willie and Cassie must help him escape to Memphis where he can start a new life and possibly return,maybe oneday. The trust they had in the only white man they could call a friend suddenly is in question, and now at the age of courting, love and what it symbolizes confuses Cassie and those that surround her everyday. Its a great book to read and I consider it one of my favorite of all time.
