Important history

I thought this was an excellent combination of titles and I appreciated the way these books were packaged. After listening to Let the Circle Be Unbroken, I wanted to know more about the Logans. Taylor helped me understand many of the challenges faced by African Americans over two generations prior to the Civil Rights Movement. I found the narrator very engaging. I wish more young adult novels were grouped like this.
