Lucynell Crater is innocent, naive, and deaf.
Mrs. Crater is desperate, and loves her daughter.
Mr. Shiflet is a con, shady, cunning, and self centered.
The main characters are Mr. Shiflet, Lucynell, and Mrs. Crater
One important event is when Mr. Shiflet shows up to Mrs. Carter's house.
The setting is in the american south, in a rural home, in the 1950's
Another important event is when Mr. Shiflet leaves Lucynell at the diner.
The main conflict is that Mr. Shiflet needs money. Mr. Shiflet meets Mrs. Carter and Lucynell and decides to take advantage of them. He does many things to get money but he eventually leaves them.
The Life You Save May Be Your Own
Mr. Shiflet first stayed with the Carters while he fixed their car for money. Then he married Lucynell. But he later decided that he didn't want to be married to her. So he left her at a dinner and left to go to Mobile.
The tone of this story is dark. The mood is weird. My reaction to this story is that it was good. I liked the story. However, I didn't like Mr. Shiflet. He was rude and annoying.
