Description

When a tsunami rages through their coastal home in India, sisters Ahalya and Sita are left orphaned and alone. Searching for protection in a devastated landscape, they are thrust into a seamy world of violence and underground commerce.

In Washington, D.C., attorney Thomas Clarke, facing his own personal and professional crisis, makes the fateful decision to pursue a pro bono sabbatical in Mumbai, India, with a non-profit organization that prosecutes the region’s human traffickers.

Though Clarke and the sisters are separated by half a world, their destinies are intertwined. Clarke makes it his personal mission to rescue them, setting the stage for a riveting showdown with an international network of ruthless criminals.

Spanning three continents and two cultures, A Walk Across the Sun is a suspenseful, fast-paced and moving journey through the underworld of modern slavery and into the darkest—and most resilient— corners of the human heart.

    After studying human trafficking and slavery this past term with my grade 9 class on the teacher, I was intrigued to find out more about the topic, and love reading fiction that is based on true. This book was shocking in the truths that it revealed, and really made me think about what my class and I could do to make a difference. The story in itself was captivating, and I had a hard time putting it down. I definitely recommend this book, but probably for people who are 18 and over, as some of the stuff is pretty hard to take, even though it's the truth of what's really going on.
