Eleanor and FDR had 6 children, forcing her to take on the duties and responsibilities of a wife and mother and to follow the expectations society held for women in the 1920s. She was influenced by Roosevelt 's mother, Sara Ann Delano, in whose house they lived, where Delano was the dominating woman in the household.

Edit My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She 's Sorry written by Fredrik Backman, tells the story of seven (almost eight) year-old Elsa who 's recently deceased grandmother sent her out on a grand treasure hunt to deliver letters to people she wanted to apologizes to. Set between the real world and the fantasy world of the Land-of-Almost-Awake, Elsa must journey to find out what kind of person her grandmother was before she was born. The shining aspect of the story is the well developed characters and how everything is connected back to the fantasy land that Elsa 's grandmother created. The story really centers around the relationship between Elsa, her mother, and her grandmother. It is about the lessons a grandchild must learn about their parents and grandparents, and how not everything, or everyone, is what it seems at first glance.

In the first paragraph, Sister mentions her relationship with Stella-Rondo giving more meaning to her reappearance and the impact it has on Sister, “I was getting along fine with Mama, Papa-Daddy and Uncle Rondo until my sister Stella-Rondo just separated from her husband and came back home again” (Welty 687). Sister explains the nature of her relationship giving the reader more of an idea for the reasons Stella-Rondo’s reappearance causes such family drama and somewhat introduces the plot of the story, “Stella-Rondo is exactly twelve months to the day younger than I am and for that reason she 's spoiled. She 's always had anything in the world she wanted and then she 'd throw it away” (Welty 687-688). This favoritism shown to Stella-Rondo not only produced the her spoiled nature, but also the jealous nature of Sister. Consequently, their relationship alone is what causes the drama and consequently the conflict throughout the story.
