The Well David's StoryDuring a drought the Logan family shares their well water with all their neighbors black and white alike But David and Hammer find it hard to share with Char. Loved the way this book ended but I have to say that the story caught me off guard Here's why I knew it was based back in the early 1900s but I didn't know it was going to be written the way it was This author stayed true to the times of racismprejudice in the way she wrote it An inappropriate word was used throughout the entire story because that was the language that was common during that time period THAT was the reason why it caught me off guard and was hard to readThe story itself taught a great lesson when you do bad things to people sometimes you get than you bargained for in the end So I liked the way it ended REALLY liked itI'm not sure how my 5th or 6th graders would take to this book I'll try it out on someone and see

As part of our 2020 reading challenges my mom and I are revisiting the old works of her favorite YA author Mildred D Taylor and will soon get to read All the Days Past All the Days to Come for the very first timeThe Well is the second book in the Logan family saga a story that takes us one generation forward to David George Logan Paul Edward’s youngest son and Cassie’s father One summer while his father and older brothers are away David attempts to manage the competing issues of a local drought a hotheaded brother an increasingly senile grandmother and a competing duo of white brothers aka “scounds” who would love nothing than to cause trouble for David and his brother Hammer This story is one that you can see becoming Logan family legend before your eyes—it is a perfect tale to be repeated over family reunion picnics tables years later when the danger seems less present However despite Taylor’s use of David as an even tempered ever so patient narrator you still sense the very present danger for these characters For preteens in this community lynching is an everpresent reality feared by the black boys and threatened by the white ones While the pre 2020 books in the Logan family saga were all written by the time I was reading them as a child I’m not sure that I ever paid close attention to the seuential order of them For this reason I enjoyed being able to read The Well directly after the Land It’s nice to witness all the references for starters I can’t help but think the Sims are tenant farming on the same “40 acres” Fil Granger scammed away from Paul and Mitchell Both Ma Rachel and Paul Edward share stories we’ve heard in The Land but with some new details or vantage points Through his recounting of his falling out with Robert you can see that Paul Edward has inherited his parents’ skill for using storytelling to impart wisdom and you also see the growth he’s experienced over the years He’s clearly come a long way from struggling to successfully share this story with Nathan and being saved by the bell—I mean MitchellI’m enjoying my linear time with the Logans and am excited to continue on soon
