Importance of Women

I didn't not realize until after our discussion about the connections between the yellow woman story and Prodigal Summer that Prodigal Summer is mainly about women. 2/3 of the main characters are women, and even the story line about Garnett revolves around woman.  In the very first section about Garnett, he thinks "a woman is an anchor" and his neighbor Miss Nannie Rawley, is basically the main focus of his life.

I am going to focus on the connections between Garnett's story and the characteristics the women in his life have in common with the yellow woman story.
