The third book about the Logan family, following on from the two previous books, which were Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry and Let the Circle Be Unbroken.

1941 – all America is filled with rumblings of war in Europe and the Pacific. But Cassie Logan has reason to be more concerned with trouble back home in Mississippi. Cassie is finishing high school in the city of Jackson and dreaming of college and law school. But no amount of schooling could prepare her for the tense dramas about to converge: a quarrel between two young lovers; a black friend's rage at his white tormentors; and a white youth's remorse over his part in a violent incident. Caught up in the center, Cassie is propelled into three harrowing, exhilarating, unforgettable days that will force her to confront the adult world...

Very good, but I failed to enjoy it as much as Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry and Let the Circle Be Unbroken.
