Ruth is really hard to like especially when we as reader see what's really going on with Dawn and what she's going through. Ruth always turns to Barbra thinking that one of these times something will change. I really think that that's a bad idea and she shouldn't do that. If i were Ruth and i kept getting nervous calls concerning a child i would try to do so much more than give the mother another chance. Dawn almost killed herself because of her mother not being there for her and loving her like normal parents would do for their children.

In the “Poisonwood Bible”, by Barbara Kingsolver, there are particular elements of exile that drive Leah Price to finding her true self, each leading her further away from the previous exile status and closer to her true self. Such instances of exile are seen as a placeholder for the next instance in which she descends into her true self and departs from her “home”. For example, when she leaves America with her family, she knows little-to-nothing about what the Congo has-in-store for her. As she loses her connection with America, she begins to rely more on Nathan Price, her father, strengthening the bond that they already had, which only leads to the imminent exile that she must face next.
