One of the conflicts in the book is overcoming obstacles. The dire poverty that  Beetle endures, and her quest to reach her potential create a "two steps forward,one step back" situation. It is her enduring spirit that keeps her striving to overcome the circumstances she has had to live.

Well.....I think the main problem is that Alyce kept on facing problems ever since she started being a midwife's apprentice and so the solution would be that she would have to "take 2 steps forward and one step back" just like renelane had said
