The redeeming qualities that Turtle does possess are not truly acknowledged by her, as all she thinks about is how stupid she is when making small mistakes.

In these chapters, for example, jane’s disappointment in love is juxtaposed with Charlotte’s marriage. Notice how neither situation fits with Elizabeth’s idealistic view of life.

At this point, the mother seems to be willing to distinguish between Jeanette ‘the Wilful Sinner’, who rejected her teachings and betrayed her publicly, and Jeanette ‘the Perfect Missionary’, the holy instrument she created for the Lord. The maternal aggressive attitude profoundly affects the girl’s trust in the maternal figure.

Cultural barriers prevent communication between people from all around the world, especially between the mothers and the daughters, and not necessarily figuratively.
