The tribe referred to their heroine simply as "Third Wife." Bella couldn't help but wonder why the tribe wouldn't show her enough respect to even remember her name?
Rose question; Why does Bella seem to repeatedly find the concept of martyrdom (dying for others, of for a cause) so appealing?
Professor B's question: As Bella wondered: "If 'Third Wife' was the one who saved her entire tribe from extinction. Why couldn't her decedents even respect her enough to even remember her name?
Dear Debbie I think that you are exactly right. I think that Bella seemed to immediately identify with the third wife. Because they both has the capacity to love so much that they were even willing to die for the ones they loved. Thank you for sharing, Doc
