You have a lot of questions here but I can make a general statement. The idea of home and houses are a reoccurring motif through this novel. Houses are turned into homes when there is a sense of belonging, identity, and purpose. Esperanza needs a home that can not only reflect her past but also define her future as independent from her past.
