WHAT THEY SAID…
“Julie tackles a difficult subject. One that is hard but necessary to face. She draws you in fully to the lives of two different victims, crosscut stories, but also manages to show you where angels show up. She gives hope in the midst of the trials, and the encouragement to press through.” – Cheryl McKay (Screenwriter The Ultimate Gift and Co-Author, Never the Bride)
“In Innocent Lives, Julie Bonn Blank has artfully captured the heartbreaking story of child-human trafficking. This is a difficult subject, but one that must be known so action can be taken. These precious children endure more than we can imagine, and their hearts and lives are shattered…sometimes forever. I recommend this book to anyone who cares that such atrocities are being visited upon our youngest and most vulnerable. And I implore everyone to get involved any way possible. We must rescue our children!” – Kathi Macias, award-winning author of more than 50 books, including Deliver Me from Evil
“Bravo! A powerful book on the heartbreaking issue of trafficking. I highly recommend this to everyone, especially those who have a heart for the wounded. Truly an excellent read.” – Carla Ashton, Counselor, Co-Founder and Director of Soul Restoration Ministries
“I’m not really a reader and tend to read slowly. However, one day last weekend I set my timer. I was going to read this book for 15 minutes and then clean the bathroom. Well, I set the timer two more times after that. After that, I finally downloaded the book on my tablet and took it to the bathroom with me. I leaned it against the toilet to read as I scrubbed the bathroom floor!” -Sharon Creaser, ARMS (Abuse Recovery Ministry Services Group Leader)
“This is a riveting story, which opens eyes to the abuse that is so prevalent in our countries today. Expertly and discreetly told, Bonn Blank pulls the reader into the harsh lives of these girls while portraying a message of hope and faith.” -Julie B Cosgrove, author of the award-winning Hush in the Storm, Legitimate Lies and Freed to Forgive trilogy
