Description - Make Believe by Joanna Scott
Because her black boyfriend Kamon Gilbert was killed in a city street before the birth of their child, Jenny Templin moved to the country. Because she lived so far away, she bought a car, and because she had a car she took a job in town. Because she had a job she gave her boy to Kamon's parents most of the time. Because she worked so hard she liked to relax after work before she picked up the boy. And because she'd had too many drinks one night and because she was dead tired, her car rolled, leaving the boy orphaned at the age of three, with two sets of grandparents, one white and one black, each determined to raise him their own way.
