The Grapes of Wrath

Since Ma's goal was to keep the family together, does the fact that she was unable to do this mean she was a failure in this regard?

Explain the reasoning behind yes or no. Give examples of why or why not.

I think it shows just how overwhelming the stresses were that mama could not keep the family together. Mama was such a source of hope and resourcefulness when there were literally no resources. The fact that they stayed together that long was a testament to Mama rather than a detriment.
