The first novel of Marie Balustrade dealing with controversial social issues that span the globe. The stories are not meant for the reader to swoon over and fall in love momentarily for a shallow romance. Marie Balustrade intends for the audience to cry with her, to be enraged, be disgusted, and after turning the last page, to be more vigilant.
All Balustrade´s books are supported by extensive travel and research, in addition to having been a development worker in Asia for over 15 years and seen horrors that few will ever write about. Her life experiences are the foundation for the novels. She writes from the soul, not an empty page.
