Inhaltsangabe: Feeling useless and invisible now that they are no longer gainfully employed, five retired white men move onto a refurbished tug to live out their days with a black captain, Alonzo Armstrong, and a Native American medicine man at the bequest of a mutual friend, all expenses paid. Named for Civil War units of men too old to fight who instead protected the home front, the Silver Gray takes them to places they always wanted to go. You?ll laugh as they drool over women in string bikinis in Biloxi, visit a brothel in New Orleans, play practical jokes on each other at a gay bar, and mount a cannon on the Silver Gray?s bow. But the men soon realize that they share a dark history that none of them knew. Who murdered Alonzo?s father and stole his ancestral land in the 1950s? What does that have to do with the killing of Amos? wife and unborn child by two black assailants in the 1980s? Can they put their differences aside in time to save the country from terrorists set on nuclear destruction of the Gulf Coast? As young Attorney Martin Shearer helps them unravel the truth, the men begin to understand that hatred divides and forgiveness unifies.
Über den Autor: Margie Addison Tubbs, as a daughter of the segregated South, feels qualified to tell this story of racial reconciliation. She grew up in a rural area outside of Shreveport, LA, and now resides in Mobile, AL, with her husband Dennis and two Yorkie poos. Her distinctively male voice in this novel comes from growing up with four brothers, working as a journalist for many years, and serving as a deputy sheriff in Webster Parish, LA. She also raised two sons, Troy and Adam, who educated her on the finer aspects of what it means to be male. Margie taught special education in public schools in Texas, Louisiana, and Alabama. She holds a B.A.. in journalism from Louisiana State University-Shreveport and an M. Ed. from University of South Alabama. Retired from teaching, this is her first novel. The Silver Grays? first chapter was recognized by the Alabama Writer?s Conclave as a top entry in the novel category for 2013. Margie may be contacted on Facebook or email@example.com.
