Joanna decides to return to Vincent Neth’s home. Given all circumstances, including her family’s attitudes, did she do the right thing? Have any other alternatives?

Charlene (charlenethestickler) | 1379 comments I don't think we can, a century plus later, can imagine Joanna having many choices. I expect this was the lesser evil in her mind. She certainly would not have been accepted at home. Shows how ingrained blaming the female victim mentality was in that culture.

I don’t think she had any other alternative other than going to the mission house. Going back to that family was definitely not an option. Ugh.

It was heartbreaking to realize such depravity could be done to women and the men able to get away with it.

Lauren (laurenjberman) | 2239 comments Yes, she didn't have much choice.
At least with Neth, she has some power over her life.
