KIRKUS REVIEW

The story of a marriage and a cause pays a moving tribute to a great man written by someone who cared enough to yield place to the cause to which he had given his life, the cause of his race and of the NAACP in its broadest terms. The marriage of Poppy Cannon and Walter White struck at the nerve center of basic intolerance and the early chapters of the book explore the issues they faced but because their love was strong enough to withstand the test, all this was incidental to the progress of interracial understanding on a world basis. A book rich with living and sharing, enlightened by deep love and personal understanding.
