Terry Kay was born February 10, 1938 in Royston, Georgia. He grew up there and became a well known novelist. Perhaps his most well-known book is To Dance with the White Dog, which was made into a Hallmark Hall of Fame television movie starring Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy in 1983. He is also the author of such best-selling works as Dark Thirty, Shadow Song, After Eli, and The Runaway. He won an Emmy for his screenplay Run Down the Rabbit. Kay's novel The Valley of Light won the 2004 Townsend Prize for Fiction.

Runaway Audiobook by Terry Kay. Jarrett Mooney. But their fun abruptly comes to a halt when they discover a bone during a fanciful runaway. The bone turns out to be part of the skeletal remains of Son Jesus' long-missing father. Sheriff Frank Rucker, returned a hero from World War II, begins an investigation that unmasks a racially motivated killer known only as Pegleg.

50 years after the period during which they are portrayed to have occurred, Terry Kay has produced a wholly entertaining novel concerning the lives and times of peoples in the "deep South", those who had participated in WWII and how this apparently affected the way they considered their black neighbours afterwards. I would have considered "The Runaway" to be just like countless other.

This is a wonderful story about life in the south and the close friendship of two young boys. Unfortunately, it is a reminder that racism hasn't changed much and we have much work to do. It took me a while to read this book because of the shame and embarrassment I experienced thinking that black people were and are in some cases considered to be of less value than whites. I couldn't imagine treating another human being with such disrespect and hatred. We need to fix this now.

This is my third book by Terry Kay. It will not be the last. I love to read and am always looking for quality books. I feel like I have been given a great gift, finding this author.
I read reviews that practically tell the whole story. I won't do that. I will say that if you're looking to get truly wrapped up in a well written story, this book sure did that for me!!
Khiceog
Great story to start with. I loved the people and the way the story was told. The mystery was unique and kept you wondering all the way to the end. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

This author never fails to speak to my heart. I particularly loved the adventurous young boy who longed to reenact whatever book he was reading at the time. I recommended it to several high school students for fulfilling their reading requirement with some actual ENJOYMENT!

Terry Kay knows how to write! The setting of the South in the 40's draws you in and keeps you glued to the vivid characters, the struggles for justice and the touches of humor all the while you're trying to figure out the mysteries of murder. Thoroughly enjoyable!
betelgeuze
Very well written and full of well developed characters that make you feel as if you've known them your entire life. I particularly liked the way the author accurately depicted the true cruelty and also the goodness, people had and still have towards others for reasons none of us will likely ever understand.

Love this book! Very well written, compelling story. Terry Kay lets the characters tell the story. Great southern tale.
Really enjoyed this book and think it is one of Terry Kay's best novels. Great story of post WWII south with rich characters and a thought provoking comment on the state of race relations of that time.
