There is hope, even on the darkest of days
Katariina Rosenblatt was a lonely and abused young girl, yearning to be loved, wanting attention. That made her the perfect target. On an ordinary day, she met a confident young woman--someone Kat wished she could be like--who pretended to be a friend while slowly luring her into a child trafficking ring. A cycle of false friendships, threats, drugs, and violence kept her trapped.
As Kat shares her harrowing experiences, her ultimate escape, and her passionate efforts to now free other victims, you'll see that not only is sex trafficking happening frighteningly close to home--it's also something that can be stopped. Stolen is a warning, a celebration of survival, and a beacon of hope that will inspire you.
Katariina Rosenblatt, LLM, PhD, is living proof of the promise she heard long ago at a Billy Graham crusade that God would never forsake her. Katariina has a PhD in conflict analysis and resolution and an LLM graduate law degree in intercultural human rights, and she works closely with law enforcement agencies such as the FBI and Homeland Security to eliminate human slavery. She also founded Stolen Ones--There Is H.O.P.E. For Me, Inc., a nonprofit organization dedicated to freeing other victims of human trafficking. For more information, visit www.drkat.net. She lives in California.
Cecil Murphey has written or coauthored more than 130 books, including the bestselling 90 Minutes in Heaven with Don Piper and the autobiography of Franklin Graham, Rebel with a Cause. He was a collaborator on the bestseller Gifted Hands with Dr. Ben Carson. Cecil resides in Georgia.

In addition to being palatable but clear about how it was to be a victim, this Christian book also includes realistic truths about BPD abuse. It touches on how churches (for the most part) lack of awareness and resources for how to care for members who are abused. As many of us know when people finally admit their reality the care they often gets is "just submit more, have more sex, show more respect..."
The author was like many abused women seeking to follow God who was told "You aren't submitting enough to your husband, that's why this is happening." Men hear to love their abusive wives as their reality is dismissed behind the facade of a BPD woman.
The author doesn't slander her husband but you see his narcissistic disorder as he files for child support and is granted the family house. The husband manipulates her when he brings their son to the restraining order hearing. Many of you understand this wicked deception and how difficult it is for people to believe your reality.
Additionally she illustrates how dancers are often victims, something near to my heart.
Katarina Rosenblatt knows all about it because she was one of those kids--not out there somewhere---but here in the United States. She escaped three times from this horror, but again, drugs as well as the promise of big money, drew her back into this life style.
Free at last, she is now working to help other young people find life as it should be. She works with law enforcement agencies such as the FBI and Homeland Security.to eliminate human slavery, She founded Stolen Ones--There Is H.O.P.E. For Me, Inc., a non-profit organization dedicated to freeing others from human trafficking.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is ready to lift their head out of the sand or who has a heart and calling to help others.
How inspirational is this book and God's love is amazing to turn even the worst situations into H.O.P.E.
The story was suspenseful, but often felt the narration was emotionally removed. This only demonstrated further, in my mind, how deeply traumatized the author has been by these events. I mean this not as a criticism: but it seems like a lifetime of work she is still enduring to realize her self-worth, and that she need not feel shame. I hope this journey to healing continues and the work she is doing to heal other survivors is so important. The author is a resilient, brilliant woman.
It's hard to critique a book that is so personal and so powerful for the author. I have no criticism of the author's story, or how she chose to heal. I will say if you are a person easily turned off by Christianity, this is not a book for you. About 3/4 of the way through the book it started to read less of a powerful story of healing and more of a selling point for Christianity. She works in ministry now and the work she does is critically important--but I have to say it was really unsettling to read about her thinly veiled homophobia (which, again, is hard to criticize knowing how deeply traumatized she has been and how much Christianity has been central to healing).
