Again, Guy Johnson, has written an amazing novel of family love, loyalty, and drama! This is a must read, but please read Standing at the Scratch Line first! My book club decided to read this sequel and I'm so glad we did, because we had all fallen in love with King in the first book and no.

My book club decided to read this sequel and I'm so glad we did, because we had all fallen in love with King in the first book and now Jackson is there to take his place. These books would be a great mini-series or movie. An Excellent Sequel!! Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 16 years ago. If you read the first book "Standing in the Scratch Line", then you will be familiar with the saga of King Tremain

Johnson’s follow-up features the ailing hero, King, of his first novel (Standing at the Scratch Line, 1998) in a cameo role, albeit one that demonstrates a Wizard of Oz–like ability to predict his estranged grandson’s awakening.

Johnson’s follow-up features the ailing hero, King, of his first novel (Standing at the Scratch Line, 1998) in a cameo role, albeit one that demonstrates a Wizard of Oz–like ability to predict his estranged grandson’s awakening. Tremain, a young, African-American city manager, must find the guts to escape the emasculating perils of bureaucracy and summon up the wherewithal to protect his grandfather’s legacy. He escapes the bonds of mediocrity, and, rest assured, battles nobly, facing off against a variety of colorful, immoral louts.

In Echoes of a Distant Summer, Johnson skillfully fleshed out her character. There were a couple of characters that I wished Johnson could have spent a little longer with, namely Elroy, but if my fancy were granted the book would be over 1000 pages and climbing, I wouldn't have minded it one bit. The 650+ page novel was big and yet it wasn't large enough for me. This is a feat in itself, for I hold tight to my thick book phobia. The novel was brilliantly paced.

“You done lived a tough life, boy, and I know I’m part responsible for that. I ain’t askin’ you to excuse me or forgive me. Just know I did the best I knew to do. I was just tryin’ to make you tough enough to deal with the world. To stand tall among men, I knew you had to be strong and have yo’ own mind.” “You were preparing me for war, Grandfather.” Guy Johnson, the author of the critically acclaimed debut Standing at the Scratch Line, continues the Tremain family saga. Jackson St. Clair Tremain hasn’t spoken to his grandfather King in nearly twenty years. Disgusted by the violence and bloodlust that seemed to be his grandfather’s way of life, Jackson chose to distance himself from King and live a simpler life. But now King is gravely ill, and his impending death places Jackson’s life—as well as those of his family and friends—in jeopardy. Reluctantly, Jackson travels to Mexico to see King. But after a brief reconciliation, his grandfather is assassinated, and Jackson suspects that his grandmother Serena may have had a hand in it. Jackson takes control of King’s organization, and as he does, he reflects on the summers he spent in Mexico as a child and the lessons he learned there at the knee of his strong-willed, complex grandfather. In Echoes of a Distant Summer, Guy Johnson introduces us to a new hero, Jackson St. Clair Tremain, who learns that, like his grandfather, he must be willing to protect those he loves—at all costs.From the Hardcover edition.

King Tremain...he is a BAD boy ! Jackson Tremain...he too is a BAD boy ! This book together with Standing At The Scratch Line, for me, was as exciting as The Count Of Monte Cristo, which is my all time favorite book. And believe me I have read some great books. Adventure novels are just one of my many interest in literature. And if you have a broad interest in books you will truly enjoy these two companion books. After reading each book I wondered how much was true [from his grandfather's stories he had heard] and how much was from Mr. Johnson's amazing writing skills. As I sit and write this brief review of this book I read a few months ago I still can only think...WOW...what an adventure. I can only hope Guy Johnson has another great story to tell.

A must read, great American saga by a gifted novelist. Action, adventure, suspense and romance is contained within these pages. Echoes of a Distant Summer entrances and delights the senses. Written using great descriptive prose, the story wraps you in a world that almost suspends belief. I can hardly wait for the next installation.

After I read Standing At The Scratch Line, I couldn't wait to begin reading Echoes of a Distant Summer. This book is a interesting to say the least. I was so wrapped up in reading Echoes of a Distant Summer picks up where Standing At The Scratch Line ends. I kept wanting to know what was going to happen next. I had gotten so familiar with the characters in the book, it was as if I actually knew them personally. When I finished reading the novel, I was slightly disappointed because I didn't want the story to end. Both books are an enjoyable read.

I don't know how Maya can keep so silent about the great writing skills of her only child -- her son, Guy Johnson. I couldn't wait to read this 2nd part of his saga of the life and line of King Tremaine. I want so much to ask Tyler Perry to make this book and Part 1, "Standing at the Scratch Line" into an action movie so blacks the world over can see a black Superman-Spiderman-Al Capone all rolled into one hero. This is a GREAT read -- full of suspense and action. In all of my reading, Johnson is the first writer I've found who writes action novels. If you read Pt 1, you won't be able to wait to read Pt 2. I've read all of Maya Angelou's books, I've enjoyed them all, and wish to take nothing from her skills as a writer, but her son is simply a MUCH greater writer than his mom. She should be a very proud mom!

About life, family, mistakes, secrets and finally love. I ended up not caring for Serena in the first book but she redeemed herself in this sequel. I'm also glad that Jackson came around. The next generation of Tremains ☺ great story

This sequel to Standing at the Scratch Line is as good as, if not better than, Standing.. It is superb!! For those who have read Standing At The Scratch Line, this novel continues with the saga of the Tremain family. This story picks up with the adult grandson, Jackson, who has been estranged from his grandfather King Tremain for several years. As King is near death, Jackson flies to Mexico to see his grandfather and leaves with a mission and desire that proves he truly is the grandson of King Tremain, whether he likes it or not.
Although this is a lengthy novel, the auhtor uses every word, phrase,page, etc., to draw an in-depth, complete and wonderful picture of who Jackson is, but more importantly the Tremain legacy and past that King has left to his grandson...whether he wants it or not. Although King is assassinated very early on in the book, through well placed, smooth and poignant flashbacks to the 1950's and 1960's, the reader gets much more insight into King Tremain and his life and legacy. Finally, to sum it up "you better ask joe 'cause you sho' don't know" what you are missing if you miss out on the chance to read this wonderful novel.

Do we have to get find and send a director to Guy Johnson with a planeful of actors... someone get this to the big screen! If Tyler Perry can commercialize Madea, I am confused why we can't have these books made into a movie. Heck, I have someone willing to do it! Let's face it, the world isn't a perfect place and less than perfect personalities bring out some interesting public discourse (Black women made Madea). Not all our inspirational people are noble God fearing and pious so why should our make believe "larger than life" folk be any different. One reviewer examined the historic accuracy of the book. While being a noble observation it misses the point that Black Folk, African Americans ...and for that fact Americans and the world need to be able to tell the truth in real historic events let alone the fictional stories. Further, in bring on a sense of Black Folk place in this world, there is still much to do with dismantling the rediculous vision of the timid, unlearned, unpatriotic, lazy, morally bankrupt Black Male that American has underwritten for all these hundreds of years. How long will these perpetuate? Answer: Until Black Folk change these images and begin telling their own stories... one by one; fiction and non-fiction alike. Lord knows, currently there aren't enough Black Historians to undo the less than honest works of the legions of half-truth historians America has seen and not enough Jewish historians to care (much Black is written by our Jewish friends). These stories will, like the lies that preceded them, go a long way toward gaining a foothold on the destiny of human kind everywhere.. not just Black Folk! Our destiny is tied together and human kind will never be whole nor great until nobody is allowed to be viewed as "less than."
AN EXCELLENT READ. I RECOMMENDED THE 2 BOOKS TO ALL MY FRINEDS.
I WISH GUS JOHNSON WILL WRITE MORE WONDERFUL STORIES LIKE ECHOES OF A DISTANT SUMMER AND STANDING ON THE SCRATCH LINE.
A GREAT AUTHOR JUST LIKE HIS MOTHER.
