The novel begins with Effia Otcher being born during a village fire. Effia’s father states “... the memory of the fire that burned, then fled, would haunt him, his children, and his children’s children for as long as the line continued” (3).

The imagery of fire in this example is used as a metaphor for slavery and the lasting impact it has on the world.
