I think Jose does appreciate her heritage more. In this chapter Jose understands her grandmother in new ways. She begins to see her grandmother a a human being with a history and conflicts in her life. She sees that her grandmother was lonely in Australia when she first came. Her grandmother had to work long hours in a cain farm to survive. Jose begins to appreciate her grandmother, and perhaps the immigrant experience, more than ever before.
