In Buxton, there were also children who were born free such as Emma Collins, who is used by the town to draw in runaways, and Elijah Freeman. Elijah Freeman, the protagonist and main character of the book, is the first child in town to be born free. He is known all around town for this, however, Elijah is also known as a very “fra-gile” boy who is fearful of the smallest things and who is prone to talking too much at times. This place, and time period especially, impacts the whole book; without the setting, there is no story or conflict. At this time in history, people would try to buy their families out of slavery which is what Mr. Leroy, one of Elijah’s good friends, wanted to accomplish.

A feeling that the author in Home At Last knows too well, “Even though I lived in Kensington, when it came to evening gatherings like this, I was the foreigner and tourist” (pg. 3 lines 43-44). His neighbourhood is filled with immigrants, but they still aren’t as welcoming enough as someone would expect. He felt like an outsider by witnessing those meetings. But all the people in the neighbourhood can be classified as “the other,” all are lonely, and that makes them a community, their long lasting of home and how they try to find it in the same place.

Ellis’ use of certain devices makes reading the novel very exciting and engaging. The novel itself isn’t written in a regular style, each chapter is not numbered but almost written in a journal format allowing characters to further connect with Patrick making it seem as though we are reading his daily thoughts, this is done by naming each chapter based on the location or the people involved in that certain chapter.

It's important for us to highlight our excessive achievements, but definitely take notice of the lack of interpersonal communication we have nowadays.

From reading the story, Nameless sounded very familiar to LaFollette, almost as if they are the same town. Even the description of the stores and barns sound like LaFollette. My life experience in LaFollette has not been one worth writing about due to being out of touch with the modern world. II. Retail Stores To begin with, some of the stores in LaFollette are not fully developed as they could be.
There they find Elsie’s file and a picture of her in it. Skloot describes it saying, “No one spoke. We all just stood there, staring at those big white hands wrapped around Elsie’s neck.
