Mama, the narrator of the story, is big boned, stronger than most men, and mild tempered. There is a quiet sincerity about Mama that earns her the reader’s respect early in her narrative. She is loving, forgiving, independent and frank. Mama is a realist. Despite her dreams of reconciling with Dee, she understands that her eldest daughter has much to understand about the real meaning of her family and her roots.
