Abandonment of women is the driving factor of relationships. Morrison’s novel is a celebration of the triumph other love: an earthly love. Although it is Ryna who is left behind with twenty-one children, the town emphasizes Solomon's victory over her misery. Morrison accents the women's hardships to show the double standard society places upon women. It is the love of women for each other that can ultimately transcend the damage caused by the men in their life.
