Sarah Forsyth has spent most of her life in fear. Born in Newcastle in 1976, from the age of three, the very people who were meant to be looking after and protecting her were sexually abusing her. Somehow overcoming the hurt and heartbreak of this horrific childhood, Sarah managed to build a new and happy life for herself as a nursery nurse. Then, one day, Sarah spotted a newspaper advert for a job in a creche in Amsterdam. Thrilled by the prospect of a fresh start away from Newcastle and all the memories it held, she eagerly signed up. But within minutes of stepping off the plan in Amsterdam her life began to fall apart. There was no creche and no job: Sarah was a victim of sex-trafficking. That night, a just twenty-one years of age, her life - her real life, her life as Sarah Forsyth - ended. Fed cocaine and cannabis, and forced at gunpoint to work as a prostitute in the Red Light District of Amsterdam, Sarah was turned from a young innocent English girl into a desperate and terrified crack whore. Riddled with fear about what her pimps would do to her if they caught her trying to run away, it took Sarah almost a year to find the strength to fight back and escape.
But, unlike many of the girls that she was forced to live and work beside, she did get away. Sarah Forsyth is a survivor. This is her heart-rending story.

by lucy victoria barnard
I am from Australia, and always thought Amsterdam would be a place that would be interesting to visit, I also believed that women who became prostitutes, did it because they had no other option or because they wanted too. How I was wrong!!!! This book is the kind of book teachers should be making there students read, the insight of sex slavery, prostitution, and drug use is very detailed. I really enjoyed this book, and hats off to Sarah to went through all what she did and came out a survivorshow more

I enjoyed this book, the first book I've picked up in a number of years, kept me interested and turning the pages and gave a fascinating insight into human traffiking and the red light district of Amsterdam. Probably not for the naive or faint hearted, this book goes into real details of prostitution, slavery and drug more

This book was so powerful, and absolutely underestimated piece of work. It has torn back and exposed the seedy underworld of Amsterdam, womewhere that has always been a must see on my tourist list. This book however exposes what REALLY goes on, while the red light district and mull cafes all look like a bit of fun and games to us, is seriously affecting women who are sold into sexual slavery. I was shocked and horrified at this occuring in countries that AREN'T third world, and it completely opened my eyes to the point that I will refuse to visit Amsterdam, on the basis of putting money into the back pockets of pimps and people traffickers. This book exposes sex and human trafficking in the most brutal way - because it is relateable. It literally, could happen to anyone. An absolutely fantastic more
