In this concluding chapter consideration is given to how accounts are framed by a wider discourse that creates and recreates the “immigrant,” and/or outsider. Other themes that seeped into the tales receive attention including how contemporary commerce has mostly erased the local store. Topics less far reaching in their scope and instead rest in the minutiae of the stories themselves are taken up include the everyday ways these women manage identities, gender relations, technology, and trees. Finally, attention is returned to the relationships forged by this book itself between mothers and daughters, mothers and sons, grandmothers and granddaughters, aunts and nieces and nephews, and Arabs and Jews.
