is the eldest Walker sister. She ran away after she was sold to a different plantation than the one where her family lived. After the Civil War ended she went looking for any relatives that might still be alive. She found Laylie, her younger cousin, alive & well in New Orleans. Then they both traveled back to North Carolina, finding Lulu's sisters Taryn, Addy & Esther-Rahel. Together, to get away from the turmoil in the South, they moved to Pleasanton, where they could all grown up quietly, get a good education & live peacefully. She is very mother-like i.e. compassionate, kind, caring, that sort of thing. She tries to be a mother to Esther-Rahel & Addy, but they miss their parents too.
