Francie and Katie argue over this decision, and while Francie eventually agrees to do as her mother wishes, the argument creates a fissure in their relationship.

Johnny's death when she is fourteen hits Francie especially hard. He shows more emotion when his father dies than Francie, who reacts to the loss by becoming even more determined to get an education and rise above her mother's limited vision.

As Francie discovers her desire for companionship, she begins to understand the injustices women are often forced to endure when pregnant out of wedlock.

While he is the object of Francie's affection at first, she feels differently after falling in love with Lee. She was the shame of her father staggering home drunk.
