Synopsis:

One trivial decision can change your whole life.

On an October night in 1955, fifteen-year-old Julie Morgan decides to attend a free talent show and concert at the football stadium of her Arkansas hometown. At the concert, Julie encounters three strangers: a lookalike, who could pass for her twin; a college boy, who will be the love of her life; and Elvis Presley, who befriends her and whose casual comment about a light bulb becomes a driving force in her pursuit of love and self-worth.

But in that pursuit, Julie goes down the wrong path, seeking popularity and an older boy's affection as substitutes for her missing father's guidance and support, unaware that her longing to feel loved and valued stems from her need to have her father in her life.

Growing up is never easy. The birth of rock 'n' roll, a growing standard of living, and the culture of automobiles brought a feeling of freedom and ease. But the phrase "Duck and Cover!" meant the possibility of nuclear war, and death was now a fact of everyday life.

Josephine Rascoe Keenan masterfully weaves a story of human anguish and betrayal, love and loss, recrimination and regret, and shows how choices, once made, can change one's life forever. She meticulously recreates the "golden days" of drive-in movies, screen wire petticoats, and flashy American cars, when the world seemed brighter and more innocent than today.

But was it?

About the Author: Josephine Rascoe Keenan grew up in the little town in Arkansas where all three books in “The Days of Elvis” series are set: El Dorado, city of “black gold.” After reading Gone with the Wind when she was eleven, she decided to become a writer someday. That day came after she had worked many years in the entertainment industry as a director and an actress with many talented people, such as Johnny Cash in the made-for-TV-movie The Pride of Jesse Hallam. Josephine wanted to tell a story of what life was like in the ’50s when Elvis was first coming on the scene. Elvis had done a few concerts in El Dorado before he hit the top, and she thought it would be great to create a story about a girl who met him before he became the King of Rock ’n’ Roll. The result was a three-book series entitled “The Days of Elvis.” Josephine is a versatile writer. Cricket magazine has published two of her short stories: The Petticoat Skipper (March 2016), about Mary Greene, one of the first female riverboat captains, and Ohoyo Osh Chisba: the Unknown Woman (November 2007), about the coming of corn to the Choctaw people. Her poem, “A Ride on Grandpa’s Foot,” appeared in Modern Maturity Magazine in August 2005, and Reader’s Digest published her submission for Humor in Uniform. Three of her plays have been produced in regional theatres: Friends and Life’s a Butter Dream, both of which toured with Artreach Touring Theatre, and The Center of the Universe, a three-act play chosen as a winner of Ensemble Theatre of Cincinnati’s New Play Contest. Josephine enjoys oil painting, and her work will be featured as the cover art for all three books in “The Days of Elvis” series. She and her husband love traveling, square dancing, and gardening.
