In Those Glory Days of Elvis
~ The Days of Elvis Series, Book 3 ~
by Josephine Rascoe Keenan
What if you traded your identity and couldn't get it back?
Could you live your life as someone else?
After the shocking death of her mother, seventeen-year-old Julie Morgan discovers that she
has also lost her home because of a risky identity swap. Designed to save her from shame
and disgrace, the "perfect scheme" backfires, forcing her to masquerade as her lookalike,
Carmen. Frightened and alone, Julie has no alternative but to seek refuge with her alcoholic
father. Unlike the easy decision she made to attend an Elvis concert, she now faces a choice
which, if wrong, could condemn her to a lifetime of sadness and loss.
Don't miss the other books in the Days of Elvis series
This eagerly awaited third book in the Days of Elvis series puts you in the middle of Julie's
harrowing struggle to reclaim her identity. She must find a way out of this dilemma, or lose
herself forever, as well as the person she loves most in the world.
Praise for In Those Glory Days of Elvis
This is the strongest book in The Days of Elvis series so far, as the characters are well-developed
and the focus on national events gives added weight to the small-town story. The underlying thread
running through the engrossing narrative is power and the struggle against judgment and oppression.
When Elvis, a wise fairy godfather at this point, tells Julie, "It's too bad the woman has to pay
for the consequences of a natural thing between two people who love each other," he gets right to
the heart of this tale.
A coming-of-age story that deftly demonstrates the potency of standing up for one's beliefs.

Josephine launched The Days of Elvis, her three-book series of YA novels, in 2016 with In Those First Bright
Days of Elvis. Set in the Deep South in those unforgettable days when rock 'n' roll was born, it tells the
story of Julie Morgan, a young teen girl struggling with the repercussions of a broken home. When she attends
a concert by a new singer named Elvis Presley, the foundation of her world is shaken and her life begins to unravel.
In book II of the series, In Those Dazzling Days of Elvis, readers learn that a secret now rules Julie's life.
Trapped by the consequences of a serious misstep, she faces the shame and rejection doled out to those who break
the rigid social code of the 1950s. When she begins to have hope for the future, though, an unexpected twist of
Fate intervenes, leaving Julie to flounder in the heap of rubble that was once her life.
The final book, In Those Glory Days of Elvis, resolves the dreadful situation created when Julie agreed to go
along with a mind-boggling scheme. Heroically, she fights to restore her identity and find a way to keep the
great love of her life.
Josephine has also had stories and poems published in Cricket magazine and in Modern Maturity. Her plays have
