9780140372908: Let the Circle be Unbroken (Puffin Teenage Fiction)

A sequel to the universally acclaimed Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry, continuing in the story of the Logan family in Mississippi during the Depression. The children, especially Cassie, are happy in their warm, stable family but outside is a climate of fear and tension. Their friend T.J. goes on trial for murder and stands before an all-white jury. Cousin Suzella tries to pass for white, with humiliating consequences. And when Cassie's neighbour stands up for her right to vote she and her cousin are driven from their home. Cassie is realising what it means to grow up black and powerless, but her family stand together, proving that courage, love and understanding can defy even the deepest prejudices.

About the Author:

Mildred D. Taylor was born in Mississippi and grew up in Ohio.

She is best-known for her Newbery Medal winner, ROLL OF THUNDER, HEAR MY CRY. Mildred D. Taylor still lives in Colorado.

Review:

"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

"A profoundly affecting novel."—Publishers Weekly

"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

"This is fine writing, and readers will be moved by the intense drama of individual scenes and by their historical significance."—School Library Journal

"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
