She shows complete disrespect to her own culture, in several instances saying that her mom was “too touchy” or how everyone was “so hot and sweaty.” She isn’t able to understand how connected her mother is to her. “The bond that I was hoping to have with her was acceptance of the little girl that she let go.

During the Anglo-Saxon period, and even in today’s society, females portrayed as peace keepers because they are not supposed to get involved in any of action that starts some kind of feud.
