After a tsunami washes away Ahalya and her sister Sita's town, along with their immediate family members, the teen sisters set out to reach extended family. They are immediately abducted and sold into child trafficking. Needing a change, lawyer Thomas Clarke embarks on a sabbatical working in India to fight against trafficking. He becomes aware of Ahalya and Sita's case.
While this was a deeply troubling and important topic to expose, I wasn't as engrossed or intrigued because of its predictability. Also, I didn't connect to the sisters. I felt for their predicament, but it wasn't heartfelt like I have experienced when reading other books on this topic. It was still a good audioread, though.
