A great listen

I really enjoyed this book - gripping and very moving. Uncomfortable at times but how can a book about the sex trade be anything else... The only thing that let it down for me was the somewhat monotonous narration, but it's only a minor niggle. This book is well worth listening.

Excellent listen

I really enjoyed this book; it was well-written and narrated (one or two annoying pronounciations, and French accents aren't her thing really, but I can live with that!) with a gripping storyline centered around child prostitution and human trafficking - it is horrifying what goes on 'underground' all over the world. Overall, a fascinating, absorbing, thrilling and ultimately heartwarming listen. I will definitely be looking out for more from this author.

Fascinating!

Gripping story set in the context of modern India. Loved it! I enjoyed the cultural and religious background of this book. The insight into the abuse of young girls by unscrupulous men was frightening but interesting and perhaps reflects the grooming of young women in todays Britain.

Very good overall

It was a very interesting story and it had a good ending.
It is sad to see that people would be so cruel to women and miss treat them like was in the book
