Born in Newcastle in 1976, from the age of three, the very people who meant to be looking after and protecting Sarah Forsyth were sexually abusing her. Somehow she managed to overcome the hurt and heartbreak of a horrific childhood, and 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 crèche 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 arriving in Amsterdam her life began to fall apart. There was no crèche and no job: Sarah was a victim of sex-trafficking. 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.

Sarah Forsyth tricked into Amsterdam sex industry.

 on 15 August 2017

An interesting book on how an innocent young girl got duped into going to Amsterdam on a job offer that turned out to be imprisoned in a brothel in the red light district. The red light district is not as it seems to be with young woman working in the sex industry. They are controlled by pimps who beat and rape them into submission. It’s impossible for them to escape because there’s no where they can go as the Police are also in on it. This young lady was lucky there were 2 officers in Amsterdam that were looking for her as there was a rumour going around the red light district about a British girl that was duped into going to Amsterdam on pretense of being a child nurse but was sold into the sex trade. When Sarahgoy a chance to run away, she turned up at a police station. It was touch and go but she met up with the 2 officers that were looking for her. She was spirited out of the Netherlands to Belgium. Her Mother came over to Belgium to be with her. She had a hard road to recovery and still is suffering with memories and bad dreams and drug addiction. This was in the early 2000’s and I dread to think it’s probably going on still today in 2017. Sarah is a survivor and lived to tell her story.

I absolutely loved reading this book. Horrifying, disturbing and gripping. One of those books you cannot put down. What a terrible life Sarah had. Such a well written book. A must read. Worth every penny.

Sheer courage

It is so sad that any person like Sarah who has the courage and determination to share their experiences has to cope with people who don’t believe her!

Gripping and terrifying

Everyone should read this from a certain age, it is not something we should shirk hearing and believing otherwise it will continue to happen. Not everyone will believe nonetheless it needs to be told.

Sarah’s experience: Degrading; Harrowing; Sad …it could be you

 on 6 August 2013
Having heard of the ‘slave trade’ and sexual exploitation of women I read this to better understand the ordeal that women in this ‘trade’ experience. Prior to reading Sarah’s account I had known, in my naivety, that there was a cesspit where some women were coerced into this as a way of making a living not fully understanding that this was not a life choice but a life or death decision.

A very hard read

But that is not a reason to avoid it. Well written, frightening, heartbreaking. This will play on my mind for a long time yet.

Horrific Story but one I believe is typical of today’s society

By Mrs. Sheralee Clark
This book is very telling it makes you wake up and smell the coffee of the unbelievable way humans can treat one another, the physical and mental abuse endured and for what male gratification!, no other living creature would behave in such away and I congratulate both the author and more importantly Sarah Forsyth for being so brave and frank about telling us about this environment when it would have been so much easier to keep this locked away.
