Book Synopsis

Beyond The Shadows Of Summer is the story of fourteen year-old James Sayer and his struggle to believe in himself a year after his brother's death. Working his first job, at the Illinois State Fair in the summer of 1955, James is torn between fond memories and feelings of sadness and guilt.

But will they be enough to revive the passion and hope that James once had or will he slip further into the shadows of summer?
