Jolene Shanks

She is a rural girl in Pittman County who marries Newt Hardbine, thinking that she has no other options and becoming convinced that she must be a slut after her father had ingrained that viewpoint in her. Taylor comforts Jolene after she is shot during an argument among her, her husband and her father-in-law.
