This book was about a woman who had to deal with the aftermath or her son, mother, daughter in-law, and grandson’s car accident. It is one of three stories in a non-fiction novel called South Carolina. This book focuses on legal responsibilities, medical terminology, diseases and conditions. The main character in this book is a woman named Sharon Martin. She lost her mother, son, and daughter in-law in a car crash. Her grandson, Bobby was also in the crash.
