Book Description

Oct. 6 2009 Kentucky Summers
Timmy's life has changed since his dad died. He is now living with his grandparents and attending the one-room school back in Kentucky. Dark Days in Morgan County is the third installment in the popular Kentucky Summers series. Novelist Tim Callahan carves out a dramatic, suspenseful tale about a colored family that has moved into the Morgan County farm community in 1960. Overcoming his initial fear, Timmy makes friends with the poor Henry Washington's clan of six and introduces them to other families in the area. The problem is: at least one man moved to Morgan County to keep his family from having to live near blacks and is determined to keep the area all white. Despite the difficult theme of the book, Tim Callahan has maintained the country wit and charm of his first two books while tackling racism and hatred. Spend a few evenings reading this important and entertaining story. Kids and adults will love Dark Days in Morgan County. Praise for the Kentucky Summers books: 'Once in a blue moon a book comes along that no matter what age, gender, or previous experiences, everyone loves to read. Tim Callahan has achieved this with his Kentucky Summers series. This is a series of books you just can't put down without your mind wandering back to Timmy and his adventures. Over the years, good books come and go. The Kentucky Summers series is one I will continue to share with my students as long as I am teaching.' - Teacher Kim Carnes

Once again Mr. Callahan has captured your heart in a story. You feel sorry for Timmy in the loss of his father, but at the same time you are so happy for him because he gets to live in Kentucky. His kindness to the African American family was so special. In every aspect of this story Mr. Callahan makes you feel a part of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Could not put the book down Oct. 8 2010

I could not put down Tim Callahan's Dark Days in Morgan County. It's the third in his Kentucky Summers series but one doesn't have to read the earlier books to enjoy this one.

Timmy's father has died and Timmy is living with his grandparents in Morgan County, Kentucky, while his mother tries to get a job and make a home for Timmy and his sister. Timmy is excited to be spending an entire year with his friends and grandparents and to be going to the one room school house.

New neighbors move in and they are the first black family to live in the county. Timmy's mom always taught him not to look at someone's skin color so Timmy befriends the kids and introduces them to his friends, Susie and James Ernest, and helps to arrange for them to all attend school together.

Tim Callahan handles the racial issues that arise with great care and compassion. As the plot developed I just did not want to put the book down until I knew how things were going to turn out. A great read!

Another great story by Tim Callahan. Of the three books in the series, I liked this one the best. Read them all, they are all super stories!
