A Song of Darkness: The Legend of Michael McGee

There are many who do not and will never believe that the dead can return in many different forms or that those who touched our lives so deeply in the past can come back to us. The truth is … they not only can, but do.

Ghost stories and tales of the supernatural in many ways have come to define Old Louisville, with present residents living harmoniously with past tenants who died years before, but for some reason, refuse to leave. So many ghost stories survive the test of time because it is impossible to prove or disprove them. There are things to be learned from old houses. Stories that live on forever and souls that remain with us to assure their lives and the stories of their lives will not be forgotten. This is one of those stories.

Life lessons are taught in many different ways … poetry is the most memorable.

Poetry is the language of the imagination and when shared becomes a beautiful memory that will last forever. I believe this with all of my heart and I hope this book will bring the same love and memories to your family as it has brought to mine.
