The Accident at 13th and Jefferson
Ms. Brenda J. Carlton
THE ACCIDENT AT 13TH AND JEFFERSON is a unique work of fiction comprised of three parallel short novels, taking the proverbial "what if" question in three different directions.
BOOK 1 IF YOU TRY SOMETIMES, YOU JUST MIGHT FIND...
When Bonnie Greenwood is killed in a freak accident outside her middle class home in southeastern Pennsylvania just as her son Josh's 14th birthday party is ending, her husband Tom decides he wants a new wife. He sets his sights on Bonnie's best friend, Elaine, mother of Josh's best friend, Max. The boys meddle and grow up as Tom's attempts to win Elaine are confounded by an old secret concerning the identity of Max's father.
BOOK 2 ...AND THE HORSE YOU RODE IN ON!
When Tom Greenwood is killed in a freak accident just as his son Josh's 14th birthday party is ending, Bonnie must team up with Elaine and another friend Indra to try to thwart persistent attempts by Bonnie's half-brother Mitch to drag Josh into his life of petty crime. Bonnie's mother, Juliet, only makes matters worse and the effects spill over into Elaine and Max's lives, and by extension into the presidential campaign of Max's real father.
BOOK 3 LIFE, LIBERTY AND...
When Josh Greenwood is killed in a freak accident just as his 14th birthday party is ending, his Dad struggles to find meaning in his death (or, as my daughter put it after reading the manuscript, "goes a little wackadoodle"). Tom and Bonnie's marriage teeters and they each find a new career path, while across the street, Max and Elaine confront Max's father directly and forthrightly this time with surprising results that ultimately affect the whole country.
BOOK 4 AND THEN THEY LIVED...?
Just as Josh Greenwood's 14th birthday party is ending, a tragedy is narrowly averted. How much do we really know about anyone?
