Let the Circle Be Unbroken

Mildred D. Taylor


Coretta Scott King Awards – winner


“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
