As a (not naturally motherly) mother struggling to pay adequate attention to 
my two, daughter of a brilliant and neglectful mother myself, I found 
Zillah's willingness to dive into the unknown without thinking of the impact 
on Marcus to be quite shocking. (Think that sentence is long enough yet?) She 
swears she will let nothing bad happen to him - but what does she know?  The 
best mothers in DWJ seem to do as my mother did, and I tend to - rely on our 
kids to be smart and resilient. Not always good enough mothering! Haven't 
read Luke or Derkholm yet, but so far the only adequate mothers I see are 
quite peripheral (Time City, for example).
