|Plot Summary of Jacob Have I Loved|
|"Louise Bradshaw is the older of her parent's twins. She lives on a small island with her sister Caroline, who is everyone's favorite, her mother, her father, who Louise feels closest to, and her grandmother, who is insane.
The story covers Louise's early adolescence to adulthood. Most of the story is about Louise's feelings of being left out and unloved by everyone but her father, but also covers the story of a 70 year old man, who used to be her grandmother's love, her extreme rivalry with the perfect Caroline, her friendship and later half love with Call, and her own struggle to define who she is. The story ends with Louise leaving the island for Kentucky, where she becomes a nurse, gets married, and has her own child and stepchildren."
