Not a lot is said about mother. She does her best to stretch their meagre earnings as far as it could possibly go. She never complained and simply persevered,

"Mama would count it (money) out in little piles, her dark face stern and, I think now, beautiful. Not with the hollow beauty of well-modeled features but with the strong radiance of one who has suffered and never yielded."
