Publisher's Summary

An explosive memoir of transformation from a high-end stripper and escort who hit rock-bottom, turned to God, and left the sex trade to found Eve’s Angels, a ministry reaching out to women in the sex industry.

Growing up as the daughter of an NCAA Championship-winning basketball coach and a stay-at-home mom, Anny Donewald had a seemingly blessed childhood. Then, at 13, one of her father’s players sexually abused her, and Donewald embarked on a path toward self-destruction.

When Donewald was convinced to compete in an amateur night at a strip club, she found herself drawn into a world of drugs, money, and flesh peddlers in Michigan and Chicago - and eventually Las Vegas’ hottest XXX clubs. But the fantasy of fistfuls of hundred dollar bills quickly turned to the reality of bloodstains on bathroom floors and nights with customers in presidential suites at luxurious hotels. At an emotional breaking point and pondering the termination of her unborn son, Anny reached the gates of her personal hell. There, she found God.

Then, this long-legged, fiery blonde fought to free herself from the sex trade, and, by the healing grace of God, launched her non-profit, Eve’s Angels, which reaches out to girls who want out of the sex trade.

Dancing for the Devil takes an in-depth look at Anny’s struggles and sheds a new insider’s light on the horrible reality of the sex industry from someone who’s seen the worst of it. This captivating memoir shows how women from all walks of life find themselves trapped by the sex trade and, most importantly, explains how they can get out, start over, and find the love of Christ. Courageous and unforgettable, Dancing for the Devil is a heartbreaking story of darkness, grace, and, ultimately, redemption.

    Story
    "A wonderful story about redemption for one who was"
    What made the experience of listening to Dancing For the Devil the most enjoyable?

    Her honesty without being graphic about the sexuality that she endured. She was very humble and admirable for opening up as she did.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Anny really talked the most about herself and her father throughout this especially. I really love learning about how her upbringing was. She was and is truly blessed to have a father who cares so much about her and parents who didn't look down on her but always tried to help her despite her choices.


    What does Anny Donewald bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I really liked her story about her neighbor who made wolf sounds. THe imagery with that really added to the whole thing and made a lot of sense. Also, learning about what she did in Ohio with the picketing issue was really awesome. I never heard of that at all and to know what God did to lead her there was cool!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did shed a few tears. This is not really a laughing story. I mean, the girl went through some tough things.


    Any additional comments?

    Beautifully done. I really am glad with the outcome of this story.

    "Couldn't put it down!"

    Her story is amazing. Her inability to pronounce some words pulled you out of story.

    "Great story....thank you Jesus!"

    Anny Donewald's story is miraculous and inspiring! I applaud her for her realness and honesty of the plight of women in the sex industry. Wow! I am touched by how God is using her now! Absolutely amazing. As Anny often says once she is saved and sees God's hand moving in her life..."Thank You Jesus!"
