Publisher's Summary

Sharise Sills is one of the main characters in the human trafficking novel Indigo Tears by Dennis Butler. Even before Sharise arrives at her final destination (a horrible living hell), she becomes the leader and protector of the other victims. Sharise becomes the source of hope and courage for the other women, often putting her own life on the line to protect the weaker and terrified victims.
From the author: Sharise is a fictional character who lives in my heart. She represents all that the human race can be. She is a "black woman of the ages". She is strong, brave, intelligent, kind, selfless, and beautiful. She is loving. She is lovable. But she falls victim to the most horrible crime in human history. Human trafficking is an insult to God. For those victims who are lucky enough to survive, life will never be the same. And what about Sharise? A piece of her inner soul has been savagely ripped out and destroyed by depraved savages who perpetuate this perverse inhumanity of humankind. Will this amazing and wonderful woman ever be the same?

Frighteningly and shockingly real

The story of Sharise Sills, a fictional character in Dennis Butler's novel Indigo Tears, is presented in this companion short-story as a first person narrative, a journal that Sharise started writing on the day of her capture.

An ordinary afternoon and what seemed like a routine request for directions from a driver of a van on a busy street started Sharise's descent into what she refers to as Hell. For thirteen years, she was held in captivity, treated like a slave of the historical past that she was so well aware of, and abused physically and emotionally. But instead of giving up in what seems like a desperate situation, Sharise chooses to fight back. Her struggle is described in this audiobook exceptionally well, both by Dennis Butler's wonderul writing and by excellent narration of Stacy Towles. The ending does not disappoint.

Overall, a wonderful book!
