Shy is very close to her mother and sister but she keeps certain things from them to keep peace in her home and family life. With her father standards so high for his daughters she tends to just hide from the world until she feels that she is worthy enough to be a preacher's kid. From her father's rejection and the rejection of Ahmod, she finally finds the courage to leave him and run into the arms of another man.
