On the other hand, Russell displays through her writing more obvious change as girls were trained by undergoing five different stages as a way to teach them how to conform to new environments while remembering who they were at the beginning. Both authors illustrate the importance of change while hanging on to one’s roots, but Hardy uses a naive tone to create tension between the two girls while Russell uses an abundance of symbolism to represent each stage of change.

As the prominence of a mother’s wisdom grows, a daughter’s perspective will transform by understanding her relationships and situations. To describe the relationship between a mother and daughter as “complex” barely scratches the surface. For many, it is full of appreciation and admiration, frustration and contempt, or wonder and awe.
