That is why I think that Chinese Cinderella is a depressing story. My whole essay shows that how Adeline is mentally and physically abused by most of her family. The reason that I chose this is because that during her lifetime she never got any love from her parents especially Naing when she married father so then she got even less respect. Chinese Cinderella was a depressing story because she got through hard times from when her mother died and then when father had remarried she then had such little respect from anyone that she became as if she was meant to be

Jing-Mei’s mother had left China to come to America after losing her family, and had been raising Jing-Mei in America with her second husband. Despite her mother’s grand hopes for Jing-Mei to become successful in America by becoming a child prodigy, Jing-Mei did not share the same opinions.

Elizabeth was right for lying to the court about John Proctor’s infidelity. Elizabeth believed it was her fault for him turning away due to the strictness she kept due to her belief that no one could truly ever love her since she was so ordinary. “I counted myself so plain, so poorly made, no honest love could come to me" (144).

This is seen in an article that talks about obstacles in interracial marriages. It states, “Many parents are reluctant about their children marrying outside their race because they fear that the interracial couple and any future children will fall prey to harsh or perhaps dangerous bigotry. Other parents are more concerned with furthering the “purity” of their family heritage, in which religious and cultural affiliations are privileged.”(Family Intolerance, 2006, p.1).

For example, some interracial couples might be involved in a religion that the family may not practice.

At first Josie hated her father Michael for what he did to her mother, but then ends up opening her heart to him and accepting him into the family. She also didn’t get along with her Nonna that well at the start, but after realizing what her Nonna went through when she was her age, Josie and her Nonna started to see eye to eye. The reason Josie didn’t get along with Katia (Nonna) that well was because of the way she treated Josie’s mother. If Christina (Josie’s mother) or Josie ever did or wanted to do something Katia will always say “people will talk” and that really annoyed both of them. Josie’s relationship with her mother is a love hate relationship, one minute they love each other to bits and the next they’ll be screaming and throwing stuff at each other.
“She only married you because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me. It was a terrible mistake, but in her heart she never loved anyone except me” (Fitzgerald 116).
