RE: Which characters do you most relate to?

I most relate to Ysodhara. She is constantly thinking, being the strong one and protecting a younger sister she loves, but is always a bit jealous of. Life happens to her in sometimes unimaginable ways, but she somehow deals with it and keeps the center of herself soft and flexible. In spite of herself, she is hopeful and in some ways the glue that holds everyone together.

I most related to Ysodhara as well. It seems like this is the character the author was also most comfortable with, the one whose viewpoint was most commonly expressed.

Ysodhara central figure, her voice heard the most. More extensive background on her both personality and family.
