Both author Mildred Taylor and narrator Allyson Johnson fully meet expectations in concluding the Logan family saga, which began in 1975. Johnson warmly welcomes listeners as if inviting them to sit by the fire to hear this family story. The heroine of so many of the Logan books, Cassie, is 19 at the time of the Civil Rights movement. She leaves behind both her beloved land and the hateful prejudice of Mississippi when she moves north and then goes to California. She discovers prejudice exists everywhere. Johnson makes Cassie's emotions clear as she grieves the loss of her baby and husband, stands up to injustices, and balances maintaining her family's love and respect with the possibility of an interracial marriage. The drama of the plot and the depth of the characterizations ensure that this audiobook is unforgettable. S.W.
