Hannah Moreno Amos Fortune Free Man takes place between 1725 and 1801. This is the time that blacks were used as slaves just because of their physical appearance. Amos Fortune was sold as a slave twice in this book. (To the Richardson family and the Copeland family) He also bought three slaves as his wives. (Lily, Lydia, and Violet) Amos is being sold as a slave multiple times. This reminds me of the movie, “Hotel for Dogs” because in this movie Amy and Bruce are constantly moving to different families. Amos knows the At-mun-shi language and is learning English at a point in this book. This reminds me of how I know English and I am learning Romanian. My favorite part of the book was when Amos, Violet, and Celyndia managed to build their own home and make a living in the city of Jaffrey. I liked this part because I know I probably could never make my own living like that. I also probably could never open my own successful business like Amos did. I think it’s really cool that Amos and his family is able to do such a thing.
