World Day Against Trafficking
My good friend, Janet Ferguson, touched on the tough topic of human trafficking in her novel, Tackling the Fields.
On July 30, Tackling the Fields is free on Amazon to bring awareness to the issue.
I know this is a tough issue to think about, and I asked Janet why she included it in her book. Here's her response:
"Every country in the world is affected by human trafficking, whether as a country of origin, transit, or destination for victims. Children make up almost a third of all human trafficking victims worldwide, according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime Global Report on Trafficking in Persons. Additionally, women and girls comprise 71 per cent of human trafficking victims, the report states."
I researched human trafficking for a small thread of my novel Tackling the Fields. I found out that trafficking is in our communities, and it's appalling.
Though Tackling the Fields deals with tough issues, it is a clean story--a story of grace and healing, so don't be afraid to read it.
Don't forget, it's free on Amazon July 30th. https://www.amazon.com/Tackling-Fields-Southern-Hearts-Book-ebook/dp/B01GBITDQG/
