Eye opening. With the exception of one of the narratives*, these people's stories are both heartbreaking and inspiring. I find it amazing that the state of modern slavery isn't a more discussed topic. The tales are horrific and I wouldn't recommend this to someone who has a hard time reading that sort of thing, but with that caveat, I'd recommend it to everyone else.[return][return]*There's a narrative from a woman who was abducted and forced to serve as a sex slave in the U.S. It bothered me that this was included in this collection because I don't see that as "slavery." It was kidnapping and torture. Pure sadism. Comparing it to the other ex-slave's story that also took place in the U.S. one can see the difference. But, I don't want to give away too many details here. Even non-fiction can have spoilers!
