Polly grows from a narrow-minded young woman who looks down on slaves into a more tolerant young woman, likewise, Amari grows from a naïve young woman who does not trust her instincts into one who is wise beyond her years. Throughout the novel, Polly grows from a narrow-minded young woman who is disdainful of slaves because of how she was raised, because they prevent her from getting a job, and because they seem less intelligent than she into a more tolerant young woman who understands that slaves are the same as she is on the inside. Polly was raised to see herself as being above slaves and closer to her rich employers than the other indentured servants and slaves that she lived with: as her father told her, “the company you keep will rub off on you, Polly girl. Don’t get your hands dirty by dealin’ with darkies” (78).
