- Landon on Jamie
Jamie Sullivan Carter is the daughter of the Beaufort church minister Hegbert Sullivan and is the main female character of A Walk To Remember. Her mother died shortly after giving birth to her and her father raised her all by himself. She is very religious, happy and kind. At the age of 17, she fell in love with a boy having totally an opposite personality named Landon Carter, who had been studying with her at the school from kindergarten. Later, it was revealed that she'd got leukemia and despite knowing this, Landon married her and she died soon after.
Jamie Sullivan was born in 1941 in North Carolina, which is located on the coast near Morehead City. Her mother had gone through 6 miscarriages before having Jamie.
Mrs. Sullivan read the bible that she had got from her wedding all day and she even had it with her in the hospital when Jamie was born.
When Jamie's father, Hegbert Sullivan found out that his wife had died, he carried the bible and Jamie out of the hospital at the same time.
Jamie loved to read Bible, help the orphans and the critters. She was also a very much attentive student and her grades are always one of the highest in the class.
Physical AppearanceEditJamie is described as being thin, with honey blonde hair and soft blue eyes. Most of the time, she looked sort of plain. She'd always worn her hair in a mess, almost like a spinster, without a stitch of makeup on her face. She usually wore a brown cardigan and plaid skirt. During the play, she let her long hair hang, which reached below her shoulder blades and she had put on a small amount of makeup to brighten up her beautiful features.
Jamie was a very funny girl, carrying her Bible with her everywhere and always talking about “the Lord’s plan.” She is kind, gentle, sweet, happy and cheerful and sees the best in everyone and in every situation, always ready to help those in distress. There is an innocence about her. However, Jamie is not popular at school because she is not “cool” like Margaret Hays or Angela Clark. She appears to have no friends. She loves Astronomy and she always helps out in the orphanage and talks to children about her age since she has no siblings. She also knows how to play the piano and sings extremely well, she was even put in the Church choir.
RelationshipsEditJamie Sullivan Carter was a daughter of Reverend Hegbert Sullivan and Mrs. Sullivan. She was also the wife of Landon Carter and the daughter-in-law of Cynthia Carter and Worth Carter.
