Seashells, Gator Bones, and the Church of Everlasting Liability by Susan Adger

. The publisher, Grey Gecko Press, describes Susan Adger's book:
In the 1930s, the fictional town of Toad Springs, Florida was filled with the adventures and daily whatnots of down-to-earth, worthy folk such as Flavey Stroudamore, owner of Stroudamore’s Rare Reptile Ranch, with a three-legged gator named Precious - who just happened to have a birthmark of Jesus on his side.

Joining Flavey are Buck Blander, pastor of the Church of Everlasting Liability, who honed his preaching skills in prison, but doesn’t tell his parishioners, and Sweetie Mooney, whose attempts to run a beauty shop in her aunt’s home fail after tragedies with head lice and henna hair dye.

Enjoy the life and laughter of this funny and heartwarming collection of tales from the Sunshine State!

Susan has a wry sense of humor, a sharp eye for personality and a warm feeling for place. I can hear the screen door slam on the front porch.
