It is Abel's own complex and ambiguous play with genealogy. Falling prey to this temptation, Elizabeth Abel, for instance, chidingly proposes that, in the closing moment of Between the Acts, Woolf's character "Miss La Trobe replaces a fully discredited matricentric narrative with the heterosexual plot that originates, for women, with the father."(5) Also falling prey to this temptation, Stephen Barber.

First, Abel makes use-ful parallels between Woolf's counter-Freudian, mother-oriented (sub)plots and the matricentric narratives that had been evolving. The book explores how they make sense of their lives with their children and families, position themselves within a context of inequality and vulnerability, and resist, subvert and survive material and social marginalisation. This controversial text uses qualitative data from a selection of working class mothers to highlight the opportunities.
