The POV is third person limited omniscient using Eliza. This is very effective. The main theme of this chapter is the bond between a mother and her child. Another important theme is Eliza's reliance upon God. Her Christian masters have betrayed her by selling her son, and now she in turn feels she is betraying her duty of loyalty to them. Nevertheless, her love for her son outweighs all other commitments, and so Eliza is transformed from a passive, unquestioning servant to a defiant and courageous woman. Thus, the only help she can now trust is divine intervention, as Stowe reveals through the prayers Eliza utters as she runs: "Lord, help! Lord, save me!"
