Annie Ruth is in love. Graduation is around the corner for this young lady and college is in sight. Her mother and father preach to her to keep herself focused and get her education. But what do parents know? After all, Raymond is the boy of her dreams and their love will last until the ages.
Enter into the rural community of Tobacco County, Georgia where the living is hard and the opportunities are non-existent for Blacks living there in the 1960's. You are invited into the lives of the people in this community as they attempt to seek out their loves and fulfill their dreams. Annie tells and shares with us her story and those who surround her in their attempts as young people trying to live their lives.
You will be touched by the innocence and betrayal of young love. Anger will greet you as you endure the injustices inflicted upon Annie and her kinfolk. Sadness will engulf you as you see folk not living up to their potential. Shine Annie will touch your heart in a profound way.
The novel starts out with Annie, the teenager, and journeys through seven years of her life. You witness her as a mother, wife and moonshine runner who fails to fulfill the dreams of her parents. Yet through it all her family provides a foundation of support for her and the other characters who go through hard times. This is the first novel of the author who has told a good story. It contains a few misspellings and its pagination which distract you from the story. Overall this is a good novel about naive love and delayed dreams.

If you travel deep down south on a dusty road in Tobacco County, Georgia, you'll come across a big farmhouse built in the 40s. Inside, up a set of creaky, old stairs, in a sweltering hot attic, there's a fabric-covered box with a Victorian floral print shoved in a corner. Inside that box are the memories of days gone by. That antique box holds faded and torn black and white pictures, some cracked, some stuck together, others are moldy with hand-scribbled descriptions written in pencil on the back. The only people who remember the faces and places in the pictures have gone on to be with the lord a long time ago.

There's a picture of young girl named Annie Ruth, with her smooth brown skin and the eyes of a dream deferred. Her eyes hide the pain of disappointment deep inside. Looking fondly at her are a baby, Patricia, with bright eyes and the innocence of youth, and Curtis, her husband. With his chest puffed out and the countenance of a man who loves being a husband and father, Curtis shows immense pride in his family and you can tell that the ground on which his feet are planted is his own.

Annie Ruth and Curtis weren't real however. Tobacco County doesn't really exist. The images however are very real; they are alive and in vivid color between the pages of Shine Annie. Betty Oglesby Payne has taken a snapshot in her mind and described it with exacting detail in her freshman novel. She expertly recollects the mindsets, pains, and the debilitating conditions of a racist Jim Crow reality. It's more than a body of fiction to entertain; it's a lesson in history, social consciousness, morality and exaltation of Black culture.

Shine Annie tells the coming-of-age tale of a young girl who is forced to grow up and accept responsibility for choices made in haste. Life goes on all around her and she makes adjustments to each of those challenges; sometimes making the right decision, other times opting for the easy route not the high road. Her first love almost loses his life at the hands of white men who are intent on teaching him that loves certainly does know color. Her cousin, conceived from rape, struggles with loving a man who loves himself more than he loves her. Her Daddy, Big Sid, provides a model of character and integrity when the forces around him are working to oppress and dehumanize him.

Anyone that remembers the pain of segregation, anyone who wants to understand the past to grasp an understanding of the present, anyone who is looking for a compelling read that conveys emotion and weaves a unique tale would do well to read Shine Annie. It stands out as a wonderful alternative to contemporary ghetto lit that recycles the same materialistic tale. This most certainly is a snapshot of days gone by that will touch your heart and make your heart shine.

Annie Ruth. Lucinda. Billie Lee. Curtis. Lenny. Raymond. Mr. Sid. Miss Bostic. Gabrielle. Edwina. Reverend Phillips. I know these people.
Rail City. Tobacco County. Fort Valley State. Morehouse. Albany State. Savannah State. I know these places.
The Civil Rights Movement. Voter registration. Martin Luther King's arrest in Albany. GA. Hanging out at the local juke joint. Hauling moonshine. I know these events.
As a black southerner and child of the sixties, I can relate to so much of Payne's prose in her excellent first novel. The story told here is one that vividly tells the hardships and triumphs of a young woman growing up in the racially charged and changing South of that time. Her sacrifices, as well, as those made by all around here, make for an enthralling read.
The author has done a magnificent job in bringing to life characters and situations so real that the reader feels as if he is reading a biography with dialogue.
"Shine Annie" does just that: illuminates and elevates a pride that can only be felt by the people that experienced the era.
For the uninitiated, it is a welcome "lesson."
