The american dream for amanda wingfield is that her children are sucessful. Laura needs to be marriedcand have a family. Tom needs to be educated and have a high paying job. Lauras view of the american dream is in fact just a dream she lives a fanasty life withbprobably no chance at reality. Toms dream is that of adventure and travel.
