Hope is a recurring idea in the story. Hope underlies the lives of the main protagonists in the narrative. Muhammad Bilal sustains a sense of hope by promising to keep himself alive. Muhammad's experience on the ship and his subsequent life as a slave at Live Oaks plantation establishes hope as a prevalent theme in the Lewis family.
