I think I was most touched by Mama's stories, and among those the most memorable were: (1) Mama's late-in-the-novel revelation about the child's little anklet grabbed my heart. I will never forget that passage and then (2) Mama's story about her father's desertion of the family and her attempt to reunite with him after he became a monk

Although I can't specifically remember any story, I know there were several mentioned by various family members. I enjoyed the stories. I came to believe it was part of the culture to pass on the stories. It was another thing that have them hope.
