The only support she had was her younger sister Nettie, who actually suffered the same. Her life became even more difficult when she was forced to marry Mister, who abused her even more.

However nowadays it is not that much big problems as it used to be, it is still remains a serious question. The show emphasizes feelings and changes of the personality of a character as a result of violence the character’s been through. Unfortunately, the book and the show as well were accused of promoting violence as the normal attitude to people. This is the reason why they are the frequent target of censors. The author herself claims that she wants to make people understand what their wrong behavior can lead to.
