Publisher's Summary

Sex trafficking. We hear about it on the nightly news and in special interest stories from around the world, but it occurs daily in communities all around us. Every year, thousands of young women are forced into sexual exploitation. Most are under the age of 18. The damage this causes to their emotions and souls is immeasurable.
But they are not without hope.
The White Umbrella tells stories of survivors as well as those who came alongside to help them to recovery. It describes the pain and the strength of these young women and those who held the "white umbrella" of protection and purity over them on the road to restoration.
This book offers principles and guidance to anyone with a heart for these hurting young women and a desire to help. It is an ideal resource for individuals or organizations seeking to learn what they can do to assist these victims in becoming whole again.

Been waiting....

I love this book and have been waiting for the audible to come out for years. Major insight on how the world of 'human trafficking' as we think we know it. Stories follow everyone from the staff, to the victims and even their families. Put it in presepectives you would've never known to look for.
I didn't like the narrator at all. I was listening to it 1.75X faster to have her speak normal (little fast). Other books I only go to 1.25X or 1.50X. But such a good book I couldn't lower the star average for that!
