Character Notes: Julianna Owen

Julianna Owen is the youngest of Rod and Julia Owen's ten children (of whom seven still live). She is the second daughter, five years younger than Marie. She was introduced in The Man from Shenandoah, and will play a crucial part in the current novel. No, the novel still doesn't have a name.

I can't recall the name of this actress whose photo I used as representative of Julianna. Wasn't she on a television series? Anyone?

Here is what I wrote on Julianna's character card:

Jule, as she is sometimes called, has light blond hair, blue eyes, and a fair complexion. She looks like a feminine Clay. At eleven, she is still a girl, but will soon be moving into young womanhood. She is a tease, with hands over eyes, pinches, giggles, and stares. She tends to be a little lazy, being the last child, but as the second girl, she has her share of work. She and Marie are not really close, since there is such a disparity in their ages. She is definitely Daddy's girl, and calls her mother and father, Mama and Papa.

It sounds like Jules could drive those around her to distraction. She is now a couple of years older than when we first met her, and probably even more self-aware than before. What will she do in the new novel that is crucial to the plot?
