A stunning, unforgettable story of an ordinary woman in extraordinary circumstances who defies the odds.

Timea Nagy was twenty years old when she answered a newspaper ad in Budapest, Hungary, calling for young women to work as housekeepers and babysitters in Canada. Interviewed and hired by what seemed like a bona fide recruitment agency, Timea left her home on the promise she would earn good money to send home to her family. She had no idea that she’d been lured by a ring of international human traffickers. Upon her arrival in Toronto, she was forced into sex labour in some of the city’s seediest nightclubs and kept by her “agents” for three months until she escaped.

This is her captivating, heartbreaking but ultimately redemptive story. It will take readers from the early years of Timea’s life in Communist Hungary, offering a look inside an austere but complicated world ruled by community, restriction and struggle; then, to the dark, abusive three months working as a sex slave in a country that Timea once believed would offer her freedom and opportunity; and, finally, in riveting detail, through the heart-pounding escape Timea plots.

Compelling and sweeping, balancing a tragic and unbelievable experience with a powerful story of grace, Timea Nagy’s journey is one that will stay with you long after you read the last page.
