GrandaddyAAge: Over 65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5For Such a TimeJuly 20, 2021GrandaddyAAge: Over 65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5As the author pointed out in her letter to readers, this story is about an extremely difficult topic. Sex trafficking is not something that many people spend a lot of time thinking about because of the horrible nature of that business. The story is fiction, so the reader may keep asking if things like this happen in real life. Quite sadly, it is a huge business that destroys so many lives, not only those who are trafficked but also the evil people who profit from it and those who make it profitable. With great care and skill, the story is shared of a young woman who lives in that dark world and a young man who works as an FBI undercover agent seeking to bring down every trafficking ring that he possibly can. Before he even knows of her existence, she keeps running various scenarios through her mind of how to get out of the life she is living. The story causes so many different emotions in the reader, from hope to hopelessness, fear, anxiety, excitement, dread, exhilaration, and so much more. Thankfully, the book is not graphic regarding the lives of those being trafficked, so the reader can proceed without fear of being blasted with explicit scenes that could never be erased from the mind. The focus is on the redemptive nature of a loving God.
