Annette grew up with a mother who never showed her any real love. Her mother viewed her children as bargaining chips to her benefit. Her mother Rose always preferred to keep her polygamous husband happy at whatever cost, and then her sons. She favored her youngest daughter Emma, and Annette always got the short end of the stick. The only time Rose was barely good to Annette was when she knew it would keep her husband happy. Suddenly, Annette's father dies and her aunt sends for her entire family to move to San Francisco, California for a better opportunity and life for colored people. Rose demands that her children hate as she hates and her heart is hardened by the traumas they experience in the south. When Annette moves to California she learns that judging people before you get to know them is not the way to live. Even though Annette is accepting of people of all racial backgrounds her mother is not. Annette unknowingly catches the eye of the youngest Wallace boy Tim. Annette never entertains the idea of Tim's feelings because she thinks they come from two different worlds, besides her momma would kill her.
