Even under the loving care of her foster parents, Liesel is determined to look and find her birth mother by sending her letters, despite the fact she vaguely senses something was going on. Page 95 quotes “Instead of asking him what was wrong, Liesel began writing immediately, choosing to ignore the sense of foreboding that was quick to accumulate inside her”. Later on she overhears a conversation between Hans and Rosa which only confirms this suspicion, but she courageously steals some of the washing and ironing money in order to mail the letters anyways.
