My only complaint is that he did not give any details about his escape from slavery so that slaveholders would not be prepared to stop slaves from escaping using that method that Frederick used. This makes sense, but it is still a little anti-climatic.
This is also a story of dominance of women. The author illustrates that regardless of the times, sexual abuse is a matter of control more than pleasure. Ms. Jacobs's master often used financial interest to justify his control but his obsession with Ms. Jacobs seemed obviously a matter of mere control and power which is something that still resonates today.
But, the book also shows that some people are compassionate regardless of their status and white privilege, giving hope in humanity.
