This was an era where hardship was in an uproar, and it exemplifies the reality that she had very little resources.

The narrator is being honest with her submissions, as she states, “It was the only place there was.” (608). Moreover, the reality that she had to leave her daughter did ultimately influenced Emily.
Nannies were suddenly walking in through the front door daily. Growing up without a mom and a father who did not show compassion or love was hard for Edelman.
