I think I read something that Granta magazine published years ago but I need to double check that.

Worldreader published a collection as an ebook, but for some reason, it disappeared from amazon sites.

Beverly | 543 comments I have read On Black Sisters Street: A Novel.

It looks at four very different women in different circumstances and different reasons for wanting to immigrant to Europe and how they ended in the same "brothel" in Belgium.

Sexual slavery is worldwide and big business and is the focus of this storyline along with the hopes, fears, and hearts of the four women.
