Sam No. She didn't really abandon them. Everyone had to look for a way to survive and no one would blame her for going to work with Arashino and his family. If they had the opportunity, the would all do the same thing. Besides, Mother was very resourceful, so she probably didn't feel left behind.
Achal yeah.. Samatha is right, it was an everyone for herself situation.
And also Mother did not invite Sayuri back because of her love but because she made money for okiya.
There was never any love between them.
