Sarah ignored the fact that she could be thrown in prison if she goes. Her bond with Hetty makes her use her courage to save her friend and to stand up to her mother. She explained, “I don’t know if I can do anything, but I can’t sit here on my hands… I’m going back to Charleston. I can at least try and convince my mother to sell them to me so I can set them free.”(343). All Sarah’s life she was taught that slaves are not equal to whites, but she still fought for them.

They said that it meant Able; so strong was Hester Prynne, with a woman's strength.” (Ch. 13, pg 107) She had gained respect for having raised her child as a well behaved young girl, and having provided for the both of them with an honest living as a seamstress, all the while being cut off from the rest of society.
The backup plan may have not been an easy travel but she still keep her promise and led them into slavery. Stated in the article “Harriet Tubman: conductor of the unground railroad” the author stated that “ she had never been to Canada .The route beyond Philadelphia was strange to her”.

Two year later on unknown call from a neighbor brought about the end of Shyima serving time, but her journey to free freedom was far from over. The actions in the beginning of the story show a positive character because before she was sold in slavery she would always take care of her family such as her little brothers and sister whenever her parents wasn’t there. According to the book Hidden Girl it stated “The heavy responsibility of caring for my siblings at an early age had me cable to take care of myself.” Shyima would never argue or not listen what the parents tell her too. She would always treat them well but the parents wouldn’t. It says in Hidden Girl “ Every night I prayed, please let me go home I hate the way the family has treated me here, I miss my family.” It shows how Shyima continued

Not long after, she made a second trip back to the south to get her brother and two other unknown men. On her third dangerous trip back to the south, Harriet Tubman went to save her husband but only to find out that he had married someone else while she was gone. Harriet Tubman returned to the south repeatedly to save other slaves, and every time she figured out more secretive ways to go unnoticed. She risked her family and most importantly her life to help others, but this just showed how much heart she had towards others. As Harriet Tubman said, “I had reasoned this out in my mind, there was one of two things I had a right to, liberty or death; if I could not have one, I would have the other.” She had thought about the consequences The Underground Railroad would lead to if she would get caught, but she did not let that get in her way of saving hundreds of slaves from the south.
Lulu Lamartine, a woman who shows remarkable progression and potential throughout this novel, is nothing less than a strong, independent woman who people should strive to be for themselves. Readers may look at her and see a woman who lacks confidence and turns to men to fulfill that lack, but she has so much more integrity and strength hidden behind those few negative features that people do not tend to see. Lulu is not a woman who deserves judgement or negativity because she has an abundant amount of confidence driven within her, she is a devoted mother and adores her kids profusely, and she loves very hard for the people in her life which is exactly why she is an example to follow. Confidence is not something Lulu Lamartine should lack,

The memoir has a linear structure, going chronologically through her life. I felt like I was definitely more interested in her story as it went farther along, however there was never a spot where I wanted to stop reading. Her teenage years and on were quite gripping, seeing her coming into her own as a young woman while trying to keep the family together emotionally and economically. I cringed at times, and at others I was truly inspired by her unconditional love for her family even when they treated her so poorly. As the reader you can really see the strength she gained as a child and it inspires.
