A Walk Across the Sun by Corban Addison

This from amazon.com:

When a tsunami rages through their coastal town in India, 17-year-old Ahalya Ghai and her 15-year-old sister Sita are left orphaned and homeless. With almost everyone they know suddenly erased from the face of the earth, the girls set out for the convent where they attend school. They are abducted almost immediately and sold to a Mumbai brothel owner, beginning a hellish descent into the bowels of the sex trade. Halfway across the world, Washington, D.C., attorney Thomas Clarke faces his own personal and professional crisis-and makes the fateful decision to pursue a pro bono sabbatical working in India for an NGO that prosecutes the subcontinent's human traffickers. There, his conscience awakens as he sees firsthand the horrors of the trade in human flesh, and the corrupt judicial system that fosters it. Learning of the fate of Ahalya and Sita, Clarke makes it his personal mission to rescue them, setting the stage for a riveting showdown with an international network of ruthless criminals.

    So sorry to have missed it. Needed to get my hand checked. I guess hand stands just aren't for everybody. Loved the book. Am reading it again.

    We had a wonderful discussion that encompassed everything from feminism to slavery. The best part is that no none ever became judgmental even though we did disagree about many things.
    I love our group!

    For anyone who is interested in the topic of this month's selection, Jada Pinkett Smith is scheduled to be on the Katie Couric show this Thurdsay, March 21st, 3pm. Jada Pinkett Smith is working to eliminate human trafficking and to help girls and women affected. It should be an interesting discussion.
