A reader may think that Lindsey is just a strong independent woman who does not have a soft spot to her. But after a while of reading this novel a reader will notice that she is actually very caring. Lindsey falls for her partner Chris Raleigh, but she does not want to tell him because she does not want to hurt him. Lindsey discovers that she has Negli's aplastic anemia, which is fatal so she does not try to get close with him so he will not be hurt when she dies. Lindsey does not tell him that she is sick so when he asks why she does not want to have a relationship, she says, “I’m feeling things, too.
Tearing apart a family does not mean arguing or having an affair, but it could also mean question and not finding the answers.

While in her mother’s eyes, she only supported her daughter and craved the absolute best for her child. Schwind-Pawlak presents this argument poorly due to her change of heart towards the end of the essay. She does not stick to her beginning argument which causes the opposition to lack stability. The two authors support their arguments by providing evidence. The supporting evidence of the two essay’s help reveal the hardships teenagers face while dealing with their parents.
Also, John Proctor is surprisingly sensitive and thoughtful. When he asks his wife if she is saddened he displays concern for her well-being. He wants nothing more than for his dear wife to feel loved and he is willing to do whatever it takes to make her feel that way. He always spoke good about his wife. For example, when Elizabeth was accused of witchcraft, John said, “My wife cannot lie, I have paid much to learn it sir.” (p.111) John Proctor's major flaw was his great pride in his name.
It is amazing that only through great hardships, such as Esch having to fight Manny and her finding out that she is pregnant, could she receive true insight. Unfortunately, Esch’s blindness cost her her childhood and possibly a natural relationship with someone her own age. Blindness can normally be defined as the inability of one to see, but according to Fuertes and Ward, blindness is not only a physical impairment, but also a “mental flaw” that can consume someone and can be rather “unfortunate”. One of Ward's more subtle themes in her novel, Salvage the Bones, is that of blindness. Esch, the main character and heroine of the award-winning novel by Jesmyn Ward that portrays the life of a rural Mississippi family before, after, and during Hurricane Katrina, embodies Ward’s theme of subconscious blindness, by showing it to be the primary cause of Esch’s bad decisions and self-loathing.

As time closes in on her she tells Barton, “ ‘I’m ready,’”(18) finalizing her life with the effort to appear confident.

Although Dorothea was not a psychologist or therapist of any kind she knew that improving conditions for the mentally ill would help them. In one of her testimonials to legislature she shared this “some may say these things cannot be remedied, these furious maniacs are not to be raised from these base conditions. I know they are…I could give many examples. One such is a young woman who was for years ‘a raging maniac’ chained in a cage and whipped to control her acts and words. She was helped by a husband and wife who agreed to take care of her in their home and slowly she recovered her senses”.
“Her daughter called her for help when her own attempts at suicide failed” (Laville1). Lynn just wanted to die and end her long suffering. The judge also had something to say about this case “there is no dispute that you were a caring and loving mother and that you were acting in the best interests of your daughter” (Laville2). This clearly states that even the judge of her case thought she was doing the right thing. Kay did her daughter a favor out of the kindness and loving in her heart.
Instead of understanding she loves him unconditionally, Grendel claims “even my mama loves me not for myself… but for my son-ness, my possessedness” (158). He believes he gives her power by being her son and this is her sole reason for loving him. On several occasions, Grendel’s mother stands between him and the cave door. Grendel assumes she is trying to keep him locked up, but in reality she is trying to protect him (147). He does not understand this example of maternal interaction is a representation of her motherly instincts and unconditional love for him.
In Year of Wonders Anna Frith is presented as “too good to be true”, she may be seen as a courageous and honorable character, but Anna, like everyone, has her flaws and is thus a believable and realistic character. Anna fears risks of situations, experiences jealousy and desire, turns to the wrong solution for her grief, and questions her faith throughout the novel. Anna acts bravely and risks her life in unfamiliar situations though she still fears the risks. This is demonstrated when Anna helps birth Mary Daniel’s baby as the Gowdies are gone and Randall Daniel had no one to turn to so he went to Mrs. Mompellion. Mrs Mompellion had never conceived a child herself so it was up to Anna as she had the most experience out of the two.
