About the Author
Pamela Ravan-Pyne, author of Sock Hunting And Other Pursuits, The Working Mother and various magazine articles, lived and worked in Romania from 1993-2001, where she managed the Lydia magazine office in Bucharest, and worked with a humanitarian foundation serving abandoned children. It was there that she became exposed to the underworld of child prostitution and witnessed the role Iana Matei played in bringing down some of the most notorious sellers of minor aged girls in Eastern Europe. Pam currently lives in Milwaukie, Oregon where she continues to write. She also has three grown children living in different parts of the country who provide her wonderful places to visit. Iana Matei, is a Romanian activist who founded Reaching Out Romania, a safe house for victims of forced Prostitution Whether speaking to the US State Department, the European Commission on Trafficking, The United Nations Human Development Global Forum, or to one abused, frightened girl, Iana brings the same convincing message: “Trafficking is not OK and it’s up to us to do something about it.” Designated by Reader’s Digest European Of The Year 2010, awarded the Abolitionist Award by the House of Lords in 2007 and declared a hero by the US State Department in 2006, these are not the rewards Iana prizes. The one she does prize is when a girl reclaims her personhood and her self-respect. Iana continues her work to this day where she lives in Romania with her son and two adopted daughters.

This is an amazing book of strength, compassion and love!
Normally I can't read in a car, as soon as I start I get motion sick. Not with this book!! I would read a couple pages, stop and look out and dive right back in. This book is that gripping!
Most people want to turn away from this issue but not this author..Pamela! Pam goes where no one else will! She draws the curtains back to show you the ugly side of this world, what these girls go through and how one person can make a difference in these scared girls lives.
If you have not read this book, I would advise you too. Be warned though..this is not a fluffy feel good book! This is a book that gives you a real insight into the human trafficking world and the monsters who run it. I know I will be forever educated on this horrible crime now that I've read this book.
I give a solid 5 stars to this author! Finally, someone who is NOT scared to write about the real truth behind a crime that needs to forever be stopped! Great job! A must read..Indeed!
