The third novel in a series which started with Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry, The Road to Memphis catches up with the Logan family in 1941. Cassie is entering her last year of high school in Jackson, Mississippi and her older brother Stacey is driving his first car. After a family trip to Memphis, a sequence of events, including pregnancy, death and the intrusions of Pearl Harbor and World War II wreaks havoc on the family, threatening to separate them from each other, perhaps forever. Drawing upon their strength as a family and the support of their community, the Logans fight for survival, particularly Cassie, who dreams of becoming a lawyer. The Road to Memphis won the 1991 Coretta Scott King Award.
This is the third volume in the Logan saga. In 1941, America is filled with rumblings of war. But Cassie Logan is more concerned about problems at home in Mississippi. Caught up in the quarrel between two lovers, she realises that no amount of schooling can prepare one for the reality of life.
