The laboring of slavery goes back hundreds of years before this story. This story is one of many of the horrible stories of slavery. The main character in this story is Isabel and her sister Ruth. Their mother died a few years before this story. The owner of them just passed away when this story starts. The will states that they would be set free after the owner died, but the lawyer in boston would be too late to get there so the relative takes them away. . In the end they are traded to a mistress. Ruth is sent to South Carolina shortly and they are separated. In the end there is a twist in the story that you will have to read to find out.
This story is going on during the revolutionary war. The revolutionary war was a hard decision for slaves. Both sides promised freedom but as we know now neither gave it. Until later they were finally given they’re freedom. The book title fits well with the story since the girl has been passed on owner to owner and has never been free even though she should be. Also, not just her, but many slaves were being passed on like that in the late seventeen hundreds. This shows many reasons why I don’t want to make another book title because I think this one fits well.
