Eliza is a freed African American slave. She works at a coffeehouse and is Mattie's best friend. She is around 30 years old. Eliza helps Mattie nurse and care for the sick people who are suffering from the fever. She carries a knife in her waistband and builds a make shift fan to keep the children cool.
When the frost comes Eliza moves the furniture outside so that the frost can kill the fever germs. Eliza cooks up a Thanksgiving feast for the family. Mattie asks Eliza to be her partner in the coffeehouse.
