In this writing "A Good Man Is Hard to Find" by Flannery O'Connor, the narrator tells the reader a story about a family vacation that doesn't go quite as planned. The narrator gives insight to the families lives by explaining what all the family members are usually like on a daily basis. The Grandmother is the one who is usually described as dramatic and overbearing, but little do they know, they should have listened to her all along. Grandmother doesn't feel it is appropriate for the family to be going on a family vacation any where near where a criminal that escaped could possibly be hiding. "I wouldn't take my children in any direction with a criminal like that aloose in it", proclaims grandmother. But Bailey, who is grandmothers son, disregards her opinions and they go on the trip anyways. On the way to their weekend getaway, the kids are doing the usual traveling activities such as: reading comics, eating sandwiches, and playing games, while Mom and baby took a cat nap and Dad was driving. Along the drive, Grandmother sees a road that seems to look all too familiar, so she tells her family about the plantation home that is down the road that she once explored many years ago. The kids are intrigued by the "secret panel" that Grandma claims this house has, so they just have to go. John Wesley and June Star, the kids, convince their dad to take them. As they are driving down this winding, hilly, dirt road that leads to the plantation home, the family gets in a sudden wreck. The car flips one time but everyone is okay, just shaken up, as any normal human would be. They have to wait for another car to pass by to hopefully get help of some sort. Approximately ten long minutes have gone by, but they see a car coming slowly down the road. The occupants of the car stop to help them, and guess who it is! None other than the escaped criminal and a few friends.
