I thought friend fiction might provide a more compassionate and impartial review than its author, who is liable to scream at the top of her lungs in outrage.
Montreal, Canada (PRWEB) August 13, 2008
Author J. R. Teasdale reports that when a 'recruiter' lured a dear friend of the family away, she began researching the term recruiter and its meaning. What she found was heartbreaking, a dark chapter in history she could not have imagined, even being a suspense novelist. She decided to incorporate the facts of what she'd learned on the worldwide slave industry into her fiction about modeling: Beauty Enslaved.
When asked why she had used fiction to relate facts, she answered. "I thought friend fiction might provide a more compassionate and impartial review than its author, who is liable to scream at the top of her lungs in outrage."
Parts of her novel incorporate the fact that over the last two decades trafficking has emerged as a pressing political issue on the international agenda .Worldwide, the Red Cross (2007) estimates that 700 000-800 000 people are trafficked across borders every year. (Kempadoo, 2005; Von der Anker & Doomernik, 2006).
As the story takes you deeper into suspense, she reveals how the 2001 Trafficking in Persons Report dealt Israel a big blow: The country plummeted to the lowest possible rating, Tier 3, a group described as "not making significant efforts to bring themselves into compliance with the standards of the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act of 2000." (By Aviv lavie; Stuck in Traffick; Haaretz Newspaper, Israel.)
Considering the human factor to be of utmost importance, she relates that: In the words of one freed slave held in the Bay Area SF: "Most customers come into a massage parlor thinking nothing is wrong; that it's a job we choose," she said. "It doesn't occur to them that we are slaves." By (Meredith May; Diary of a sex slave: last in a four-part special report. San Francisco Chronicle.)
