From the Back Cover
From the beautiful Himalayas to the mighty Ganges River of northern India, a soul-stealing spiritual darkness ravages the land. More than 35 million children are orphaned and destitute. Over 25,000 girls are abducted annually for sex trafficking.
God's heart breaks for them. And in His great mercy, He called one unlikely young woman to shine His light in this dark place.
With warmth and disarming honesty, Leanna Cinquanta shares the rigors, heartaches and miraculous experiences of living hand-in-hand with God, invading the blackness and liberating His treasures. You will be amazed and encouraged at how the supernatural love of Jesus can transform not just one heart, but the hearts of a nation.

"A must-read for anyone with God's heart for the most vulnerable in the most difficult places."--BARRY CHRISTOPHER HOWARD, CFO and senior vice president, World Relief
"Your heart will burn and your faith will be activated as Leanna takes you on her journey of mystery and revelation, trial and triumph."--JAMES W. GOLL, bestselling author; founder, God Encounters

The author, Leanna Cinquanta, is modern day proof of the truth of Jesus' prophetic words in John 14:12,
"Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also, and greater works than these he will do because I go to my Father."
Leanna's story, while definitely outside any box, leaves no doubt in the reader's mind as to it authenticity - the proof is built in.
Leanna holds a paint brush instead of a pen, the words flowing across the page are so rich, that the descriptions she paints draw you into the movie produced in living colour on your mind's screen. Your emotions and your senses are heightened and engaged - and you are loath to put the book down.
I love this book ... and have read it aloud to my husband - and I have ordered hard copies to give to my grandgirls.
I am not a book spoiler (smile) so if you desire a mind-blowing, inspiring read I highly recommend "Treasures in Dark Places."
My favorite part of the book came at the conclusion, when the author finally dedicated a few paragraphs to the importance of her ministry. A story was told of a 7 year old who was tricked into going to a brothel to work, her family having been convinced she was going to a nice boarding school. After a year of surviving as a sex slave, she climbed her 4 story building and jumped off to end her life. I will leave you with an excerpt so you may better pray.
Thousands of little girls across north India languish in similar anger, waiting for someone to help them. India has been termed the "poisonous hub" of sex trafficking in Asia. The Ganges River area alone sees over 25,000 children trafficked annually. One researcher dubbed it the "touchstone of our success or failure in completing the task of world evangelization" with Christians numbering less than 2 percent of burgeoning three hundred million people.
The detailed picture she presents of her childhood sets up the theme of treasures,
and her supernatural encounters are fascinating.
May God continually bless Leanna and those who are touched by her ministries.
