It was the breaking point in her mindset when she decided to run away with her children. Although escaped from Sweet Home, slavery haunted and tracked her down. To save her children from slavery, from experiencing what she did, from something she perceived as worse than death, she had only one choice: “the terrible choice between life as a slave and violent death that is almost the only choice slavery allows to its victims.” (Daniels 16) so she decided to kill them all when she caught a sight of the schoolteacher coming to get them and bring back to Sweet Home. As Fuston-White remarked, one cannot judge Sethe for what she did because “it was not madness, but the reality of slavery, that drove Sethe to kill her child” (461). Her love for them is unspeakable, she identifies them as her essential part, as the one and only valuable thing she can claim as hers and therefore wants to protect them, even if it means killing them: “And though she and others lived through and got over it, she could never let it happen to her own.

Upon asking the reason for her stay she tells them, “Well, your father and I decided it was time I came to stay with you for a while… Jem’s growing up now and you are too. We decided that it would be best for you to have some feminine influence. It won 't be many years, Jean Louise, before you become interested in clothes and boys’(Lee 169). As the conversation drags on the kids find out that their Uncle Jimmy did not come with her and stayed back at their house.

Gary’s wife Sue, mother of two children and expecting her third child was a good companion to Nina. She accompanied her with her children to the Halifax mall and helped her purchase clothes.

Each time she has sex with her husband she hopes that she will be conceived.

We can deduce from this that she likes being apart from her family when she has the opportunity, and when she finishes school she would have to stay with them. We start to see how distant her relationship with her family really is when her father’s chauffeur picks her up from her boarding school. As Adeline runs downstairs ‘as in a nightmare’, we remark that she doesn 't go home unless someone has died. This shows the readers that she goes home and sees her family only in the occurrence of a death in the family. As Adeline journeys home, it is apparent that she has not seen her family in a while, as she does not recognize the ‘elegant villa’ where her family now abodes.
