A haunting, unforgettable, and ultimately inspiring story of a young woman who survived human trafficking Sophie Hayes, a young, educated woman, lured from her family by a 19-year-old Albanian illegal immigrant named Kas, into spending an idyllic weekend in Italy with her seemingly charming boyfriend. However, on the day she planned to return home, everything changed. He made it clear that she wasn't going anywhere. Soon Sophie's bewilderment turned to fear as he punched and shouted at her and threatened to kill her adored younger brothers if she didn't do exactly as she was told. Hayes describes in detail the six months she spent as a sex slave working seven nights a week, servicing "on average, about twenty-five customers every night." The book is a gripping if grim look at the psychology behind the pimp-whore relationship.

This is a story about human bondage. Sophie went to Italy with a man she thought loved her, her best friend, and was forced to prostitute herself for his gain. Another book that I would recommend on this topic is Sold by Patricia McCormick.
