In the novel The Bean Trees by Barbara Kingsolver, She writes about Taylor and Lou Ann and their struggles through motherhood. While Taylor travels across the country she makes a stop in Oklahoma where she finds a baby  who has been abused. She decides to save the baby and take her with her to Arizona. In Arizona Taylor meets another new mom Lou Ann. While Lou Ann was pregnant her husband Angel decided to abandon her and the baby. Taylor and Lou Ann meet and instantly click, They move in with each other and figure out how to raise these babies together. Kingslover shows how the strength of motherhood is dependent on love and willing to do anything for their children. She portrays this through Taylor and Lou Ann.

Kingslover shows that the strength of mothers is dependent on their love for their children. She demonstrates this through Taylor's mom, “There were two things about Mama. One is that she expected the best out of me. And the other is that then no matter what I did… she acted like it was the moon I had just hung up in the sky and plugged in all the stars; Like I was that good.” (46). What taylor's mom meant from this is that she always wanted taylor to put her all into everything even if the  result didn't turn  out the way they  wanted it to. I think  that no matter what taylor did, good or bad, her  mom would always love and support her no matter what. A mothers love is so strong that  even the simplest  accomplishments seem huge. This  shows how the strength of a mother is dependent on  their love for their children because their children is what keeps them going.
