Another act of betrayal in the novel is when Sanaubar left Hassan and Ali. Sanaubar had a duty of being a mother to Hassan and a wife to Ali. She not only betrayed Ali by committing adultery, but also leaving Hassan without so much as holding him because of his cleft lip. According to the text,” Sanaubar had taken one glance…barked a bitter laughter…she had refused to even hold Hassan, and just five days later, she was gone.” (Hosseini, 9). Her actions had left Hassan without a mother figure.

Celie is able to change who her trusted confidant is very quickly, showing God was never a friend; instead He was a placeholder for someone Celie could openly trust. This was a turning point in the novel because Celie is rejecting God from her life. Mahdi Deghani attributes this rejection to the “fear of God [which] has prevented her from standing up to her tyrannical patriarchal force which is imposed upon her” (Dehghani 452). At the start of the relationship, Celie was afraid of God instead of loving Him, showing the fear Celie had on all the authoritative men in her life. To Celie, God is just another man who never responds to help her, which is why the relationship never allowed her to become more self-confident.
Blanche ultimately deteriorates to madness when she lies to herself and others repeatedly telling others that Shep Huntleigh will come take her.

In this part of the story, he does not sympathize with the wife. Therefore, he does not rouse the reader’s sympathy for the wife, and in the process, distances the readers as well. The narrator further distances the reader by reminding him always that he is reading a book. This scheme acts to disengage the reader from developing any form of emotion towards the characters in the narration. At one point he says, “Pieces of the story began to fall into place” (Carver 2370).

Perhaps the greatest statement Baldwin could have made with Giovanni’s Room would be to tell us anything of David’s life after Giovanni’s death, but tastefully and cautiously, he instead refrains. Baldwin leaves David forever framed by a relationship that was never allowed to flourish, which perhaps tells readers the haunting effects of internalized and outside homophobia more than anything

In addition, Hester has to abide by the rules of the Puritan religion and she is concerned for their rigid and oppressive rules. The Puritans have strong beliefs where society, religion, and the family lifestyle is adjacent. Hawthorne states, “Thus, we seem to see that, as regarded Hester Prynne, the whole seven years of outlaw and ignominy had been little other than a preparation for this very hour” (Hawthorne 177). Hester Prynne has been thrown out of the community for seven years and she does not expect to follow any of the Puritan rules. She should not have to follow the rules of a place that she does not belong to.The townspeople all look at Hester as an example for a sinner.
Hester is scarred with her sin and the punishment from the Puritans. Hawthorne portrays Hester's perspective: "Hester had vainly imagined that she herself might be destined prophetess, but had long since recognized the impossibility that any mission of divine and mysterious truth should be confided to a woman stained with sin, bowed down with shame, or even burdened with a life-long sorrow" (274). The transformation of Hester being degraded to the Puritans respecting her actions is a confusing concept. It creates uncertainty of the character and the overall message of the
