Publisher's Summary

Sarah Forsyth has spent most of her life in fear. After overcoming the hurt and heartbreak of a horrific childhood, Sarah managed to build a new life for herself as a nursery nurse. 

Then, one day, she spotted a newspaper advert for a job in a crèche in Amsterdam. Excited by the prospect of a fresh start abroad, she eagerly signed up. But within minutes of stepping off the plane in Amsterdam her life began to fall apart.... 

There was no crèche and no job. That night, at just 19 years of age, her life - her real life, her life as Sarah Forsyth - ended. Fed cocaine and cannabis, and forced at gunpoint to work as a prostitute in the Red Light District of Amsterdam: Sarah was a victim of sex trafficking. 

Sarah Forsyth is a survivor. This is her heartbreaking story.

Excellent. Moving story.

This book is well organized, with an excellent narrator. You think you are listening to the actual person. To me, this is a grown up version of the outstanding book, Violated, by Sarah Wilson. That dealt with the Rotherham Scandal. The ineptness and corruption of the Rotherham police were similar to the local Amsterdam police in this story.

This is so well done, that you actually feel Sarah Forsyth’s pain. I always associated the city Amsterdam, with Anne Frank. It was on my bucket list. No longer. How can such despicable practices be so widespread in that city. Apparently, once ensnared in human trafficking the girls are made so drug dependent, they will probably never be whole again. Those that do become whole, must have a great support system and be very strong willed.

Congratulations to the author for an outstanding book, and to an equally outstanding narrator.

A life an opnion changing read

A heart wrenching story about a situation I was totally ignorant of.
Told with pace and clarity it leads you through a life and situation that one finds unnbelievable in this day and age. You will not put this listen down. It doesn't titilate or bring you detail......it beings you sadness and a feeling of loss.
Life changing read? - why not? I dare you to read / listen and not feel ashamed of the curtain that gets lifted on the envorinment we use for stagg parties and "innocent" jolly japes. I was questioning my whole attitude to those whove been and to thoae that will follow.
Whatever I thought before.......I can no longer think this for the future.
Read it .

Everyone should read this book

This is one of the most harrowing and deeply shocking books I have ever read, Sarah forsyth tells her story and forces open the eyes of the ignorance that is the forced sex trade. The narrator made me feel like I was there with her, and as a victim of sever abuse myself I felt all of Sarah's pain. this book gave me hope that I too can survive my trauma just like she has.Brilliant

What a terrible life

A very sad story, but a good listen.
They say what ever doesn't kill you makes you stronger, but one person shouldn't have to suffer so much to learn this lesson.
