You might not understand the intricacy in the first few chapters but the way this book has been weaved is so beautiful that more insights will come forward as you read through. This book will definitely make you question about the privileges people have this century. I am not a black person living in US to understand the repercussions of slavery but it does emulate the situation a bit in the other parts of the world these days maybe not in the form of racism everywhere but has shaped in a different way in the form of sexism, ageism, homophobia, classism and religious intolerance.

The story of Hiram is so fascinating and it gives you a glimpse of what slavery is, what happens when you try to escape slavery, how life is after the freedom they long for and what kind of sacrifices people had to make just to stay alive.
