This book was great, I thought is was going to be the whole story of the underground railroad, and throughout the book I kept waiting for Uncle Tom's Cabin to become a secret hideout, this was not the case. To me the point of this story seemed to be in showing that the slave peoples were human and felt things just a deeply as anyone else. I realize that the big villain of the story was Simon Legree, a horrible specimen of humanity it is true, but to me Marie St. Clare was way worse, being responsible for the same atrocities, but pretending to be a Christian. I love that true humanity is equated with Christianity and those that conquer are the people that can love their enemies. Another book with the same message that I also loved was "The Hiding Place" by Corrie Ten Boom
