A Walk Across the Sun

by Corban Addison

This novel is worth reading for its difficult subject matter – the cruel world of modern slavery and the worldwide sex trade. Chapters alternate between would-be American rescuer, Thomas, and the young Indian victims. A shame the tagline reveals the ending – but read it anyway for the emotional journey and as a story of survival and the strength of the human spirit.

Extract

Thomas finished his beer and left a hundred-rupee tip for the waiter. Bidding the last of Dinesh’s friends farewell, he left the White Orchid, feeling disgusted with himself. He wondered what the people at CASE would think of him for patronizing such a place. He wondered what Priya would think or whether she would care.
