Some questions arise: How will Jerry Flem, Jackie's new lover, be received by the loving but tyrannical matriarch of Ludens Bend, Minerva Luden? Will the loutish town sheriff, Beebus McCloud, win the hand and heart of the faded Southern belle, Neva Jean Wulmothe, sister of Jackie's favorite cousin, the portly Junior Wulmothe, who lives in constant fear of the miniature blind albino goats that dwell in the deserted coal mines beneath Wulmothe Manor! Will the women of the local Third Church of God, Delivered, rescue their faltering church with their new project, the Eternal Life Cafe and Souvenir Shop for Jesus?
About the Author:
Mr. Glover, a third generation Alabamian, offers his first novel. When queried about education and previous literary efforts he said, "Education? Well, I got out of high school with my life. They finally invented a special diploma just to get rid of me. As far as other writing goes, nothing. I DID send a rather severe note to Nancy Reagan once explaining why 'Just Saying No' had never done a lot to help me stay clean and sober." Mr. Glover and his dog, Dinah, spend winters in Phoenix, AZ and summers at Quarter Pine Farm in central Alabama.
