A native of Seattle, I landed a decade ago in the Chicago suburbs with my husband. I still pine for snow-capped peaks and mist-covered islands in the Emerald city.

One of the innovative elements is how Dawn carries the theme of lost and found people throughout the book. So many books focus on the sin and forget the person. Dawn turned that equation around and made it about those people who are caught in the middle of their sin and their circumstances. Even when the people in the book are hard to love, Dawn challenges the reader to see them as Jesus does.
Dawn has tackled a subject that few would cover. She has dealt with the topic in a straightforward way that shows the sin but then focuses on the solution. In all that she had friends and co-workers praying for her and her work.
I believe that Dawn's risk is going to pay off in exciting ways as people around the world get to know what ministry is going on to free people from the sex trade and how they can get involved.
But this book also offers something unexpected; hope. And not just any kind of hope, but the hope that can only be found in Jesus Christ. As each story is told of people being brought out of slavery and into the light of God, each drops their past and does the will that is God's. Whether it be starting ministries in churches (Harmony started a ministry in L.A. to reach out to women in the sex industry), to helping pull others from sexual slavery (Moon potentially saved a girl's life as she was about to be shipped to Bangkok for prostitution), each is done in the name of the Lord. Escaping the Devil's Bedroom is a fairly titled book because each person could have died in the world they were being held captive in, but through God's strength and grace, each escapes from the hands of Satan in a marvelous way. This book is an absolute must read for those looking to go into the missions field. This is a worldwide problem, and Dawn Herzog Jewell offers a worldwide solution. Jesus Christ.
