Eye Opening Self Reflection
Even though I am not a survivor of commerial trafficking, I am a survivor of rape and domestic violence. There were so many time throughout this book I thought "OMG, this is just for me!"..."How did she know?"
I am grateful to know I am not alone in my struggles and triumphs.
