4.0 out of 5 stars Provocative and Eye-opening, June 4, 2011
This review is from: Stolen Woman (Stolen Series) (Paperback)
Stolen Woman was a good story, and the author has obviously done her homework on human traffiking. The negative point is that the author got too caught up in the romance and neglected to crux of the story--human traffiking--until she had gone 1/3 through the book. The preface suggested the theme, and I kept waiting for it to happen. Rae is a good writer, and I am looking forward to more.

Kim O. says:
I disagree that the author got too caught up in romance and didn't focus enough of the book on human trafficking. The whole story was about human trafficking, what these girls go through, how it happens, and the rescue. The beginning chapters were introducing us to the characters, the culture, and the setting and pulling us in to their world, which made everything that happened later more understandable. I loved that it wasn't just a story about the girls that were being trafficked but also taught us about another culture and what young missionaries go through when they are thrown into another culture and the feelings they have when they discover things such as Asha did when she discovered the human trafficking going on right around the corner. In America, if a girl is pulled into human trafficking, she will be welcomed with open arms at her parents home when she is rescued but I had no idea until reading this book that in other cultures, she brings shame on her family rather it was her choice or not. It made me so much more aware of the need for these girls to rescued by organizations that know how to heal the whole person and are able to put them up in shelters and help them get acclimated to society again offering them the sort of support girls in America would have from their families. Great great great book. I was pulled in from the very beginning and struggled to put it down at night so I could go to sleep. Stolen Child was even better. These books pull you in, educate you, and then leave you wanting to do something to make a difference and fight the war on human trafficking.

Hi to you both! To June, thank you for the honest review--I'd much rather you say your true thoughts than just gush so it's all good, and honestly, if I were to write it over again, I would insert more in the beginning of the book than I did. So thanks for the helpful tip that I will utilize in future work!

And I just wanted to say that this following comment, though much appreciated (a big thanks to the Kimberly who posted it; I appreciate the encouragement!), was not from me, it was from another Kimberly. =)
Best wishes to you both!
