Where is Huck’s mother?
We meet Huck’s father in early chapters of the book, but what about his mother? Did I miss something? Is Mrs. Finn mentioned in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer?
When I brought up the mother issue up on Saturday’s run, Christina reminded me that the parents need to be absent to make a good story about children. The children need to be abandoned, orphaned, lost, runaway, etc… Need proof? Take a look at most Disney movies. Where are the mothers?
Back to Huckleberry’s mom… Where is she?
