He’d been her friend for years. He said he loved her. Then she realised she didn’t know him at all…

When everything seemed to be falling apart in Sophie’s life, she was thankful for her friend Kas, who was always at the end of a phone, ready to listen and to offer comfort and advice.
Her father’s cold dislike of her and then her parents’ divorce had left her with a deep distrust of men. But, gradually, Kas made her believe there was at least one man who truly cared about her.

But she was wrong.

At first when Sophie went to stay for a few days with Kas in Italy, he was kind and caring, as he’d always been. But three days after she arrived, everything changed.

His eyes were cold as he described the things he expected her to do ‘for love’. But soon Sophie’s bewilderment turned to fear as he punched and shouted at her and threatened to kill her adored younger brothers if she didn’t do exactly as she was told…to sell her body on the streets to pay off Kas’s debts.

Terrified of Kas, the police and the men whose pleasures she was forced to satisfy, Sophie worked seven nights a week for the next six months on the dark and lonely streets of a town in northern Italy.

Subjected regularly to Kas’s verbal, mental and physical abuse, she knew she would never escape.

And then, one day, after she’d been admitted to hospital with stomach pains – and knowing that Kas would kill her if he found out – she dared to phone her mother.

But who would reach her first?

HASH(0x9a49c474) von 5 Sternen Brave author, thank you for shedding light on this horrendous issue 3. Oktober 2013
Von VeraB - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
The previous reviewer who callously assumed that this is a made up story simply illustrates the major problem with this type of crime. Why did the 3 young ladies held captive in Cleveland for 10 years simply not bash Castro in the head and run? Really easy to assume and castigate when you have never personally known such horror. Show a little compassion.

Trafficking and abduction are still relatively rare enough in Western nations that the average person cannot perceive of what an abductee has gone through, as far as they are concerned, a book like this is only a script for a Hollywood exploit. But every time a person like the previous reviewer turns an apathetic eye to the issue, it allows yet one more child or woman to be taken and sold into forced prostitution.

I applaud this author for writing this book and shedding much needed light on this appalling issue. I wish her all the best on her continuing efforts to find peace and normalcy in her own life and her crusade to help the lives of countless others in forced bondage.

HASH(0x9a49c4c8) von 5 Sternen Heart-breaking and courageous 27. Januar 2012
Von Sibel Hodge - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
Last year I wrote Trafficked: The Diary of a Sex Slave to try and raise awareness about trafficking, so after my research for it I was expecting a lot of the horrific ordeal that Sophie describes in her book, but many others will not be. The truly scary thing is that trafficking is a huge global problem, and yet many people aren't aware of it, or they often assume that it happens just to people from poor countries. Sophie's story shows this isn't the case. She is an educated British woman who, like a lot of us, had emotional baggage that made her more vulnerable. She put her trust in the wrong person. A mistake that was a tragedy for her and could've cost her life. It proves that a normal person who accidentally slips up could be in the same situation. It could happen to you, or your daughter, or your sister, or your wife. In fact, it's going on under your nose right now. That woman working on a street corner or in a sauna or massage parlour that you see every day could be trafficked. That's why Sophie's story is so important, and together, we can all do something to raise awareness.

This subject is hardly ever in the media so I applaud Sophie for having the strength and courage to share her story, and break the common misconceptions that surround trafficking. Victims hardly ever speak out because they're threatened that their families will be killed. Often they cannot escape because they are brainwashed into believing their captors and they don't know who to trust. Their lives are a living hell.

You will cry while reading Sophie's heart-breaking story, and you will feel disgusted, sick, and angry, but it's a story that needs to be read. No one should have to go through this, and I hope this book and the work she's doing with Stop the Traffik will aid her healing process. She's a truly courageous and inspiring woman.

HASH(0x9a49c900) von 5 Sternen Live To Read ~Krystal 15. November 2013
Von Krystal Larson - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
It's surprising to think about girls being trafficked in this day and age, but the reader may be surprised (like I was) at how often it happens even in America. I can't imagine how the author handled this situation. If it was me, I don't think I would have shown so much grace under pressure. Sophie was a girl who did not know about sex trafficking (at least, she didn't think it could happen to her). When the unthinkable happens and someone who is supposed to love her more or less sells her, Sophie must rapidly recover and get back on her feet.

It has to be horrible to submit to another person for sex. Sophie relied on Bledi for the basic necessities for living because she had no choice. Unfortunately, this reliance comes at a heavy cost. I thought Sophie's character was wonderfully developed and shown through (the reader will make a connection to the author). There were scenes that were absolutely heart-breaking and will make the reader angry. This book is recommended to adult readers.

HASH(0x9a49cccc) von 5 Sternen Readable and topical but raises red flags 1. Februar 2014
Von Steve C. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Trafficked, a first-hand account of sex trafficking written by Sophie Hayes, who was a victim, is shocking, involving, and not at all poorly written, but it's not pleasant to read. There are pages upon pages of degradation and abuse that are bleak and difficult to get through. That doesn't factor into my rating; it's to be expected from an account of this sort. But one does venture into a book like this looking for edification, and with the hope that there will be at least some redemption in the end or a glimpse toward a brighter future. I wasn't as uplifted by the author's reformation as others seem to have been--I didn't put down the book confident that Ms. Hayes had remade herself and her future. While she showed much courage as a survivor of brutality, she was also unable to stand up and stop her tormentor from doing this again to her or someone else. And, perhaps more importantly for her future, I'm not sure she came away with a very clear understanding of why this happened to her and why she was so vulnerable in the first place. Her interactions with men--they way she sees them as either her saviors or abusers--are disturbing. She becomes subservient to the cruel ones and is somewhat callous and insensitive to the kind ones who genuinely love her. Until she resolves these issues, her ability to find happiness and stability in a relationship remains in doubt. That, at least partly, contributes to my middling response and rating.

But my main problem with the book, as a few others have expressed here (and it's certainly not a popular view) is that I have doubts about the veracity of the story. It's not that I'm blind to the cruelty that happens in the world, and It's not that I can't imagine this happening the way the author said it did. Yes, she made poor choice after poor choice to put (or keep) herself at risk, which becomes very frustrating for the reader to absorb. But a person's low self esteem can contribute to her being victimized and trapped in horrific circumstances. If you're not given approval from the people who should love you the most, and the most unconditionally, you lack basic tools of self preservation, which leaves you more prone to being a victim. Sophie makes many head-scratching decisions in the course of her interactions with Kas; she keeps letting him believe he can worm his way back into her life--even after she has escaped his immediate control and is back in her home country. Unlike other skeptics on this site, I get that her judgment might be impaired by fear and low self regard, and I understand that people don't always react to difficult situations the way the reader would like them to react.

But Sophie's story raises other red flags. I wanted to believe, not that this awful thing happened to Ms. Hayes, but that she wouldn't invent such a harrowing story (albeit seemingly not for notoriety or personal gain, but as a cautionary tale for others). But all the notes of victimization are hit almost too perfectly, and I couldn't get past the idea that maybe, just maybe, my emotional buttons of outrage were being pushed. Sophie is not only prostituted, but verbally abused and beaten nearly to death over and over again (which she describes each time in vivid detail) by someone with no redeeming qualities--someone whose actions she often excuses and whose approval she continues to court. At first this response provokes in me anger, then frustration, and finally a kind of numbness (much as the numbness Sophie adopted to survive her situation).

And what of Kas, her abuser? There's never any real sense of who he is and why she was so completely drawn in by him. He's a cartoon villain who doesn't really comes alive on these pages. (It's not that I want to know him. But, as Sophie says she loves Kas and has inextricably tied herself to him, it's important to get at least some realistic sense of him to understand her motivations better.) But Kas might as well have been an invention of a Lifetime movie screenwriter. When he gains her trust, he's almost too good to be true; suddenly (VERY suddenly) he becomes too vile to comprehend. He''s spent FOUR YEARS in the good-guy persona, building her up (without even sleeping with her in all that time, mind you) by saying and doing sensitive, empathetic things. Then he's suddenly incapable of doing or saying anything sensitive or empathetic. It could be that she wanted to believe in someone, and had blinders on where he was concerned, but it's hard to believe that someone as wary of men as Sophie was did not see any danger signs for four years from this completely narcissistic and likely sociopathic person. She had what could have been a healthy relationship with someone who regarded her highly and treated her well, and she sabotaged that relationship, only to pursue one with creepy Kas.

By leaving this rating, I'm giving the author the benefit of the doubt that the story is (at least in essence) true. The truer it is, the more my heart goes out to Ms. Hayes. She may have partly engineered her victimization through her naivety and emotional damage, but she did not in any way deserve what happened to her. No one deserves to be victimized, especially not in this way--having their freedom to decide how to live their own life taken away. Trafficked is not fun to read, but I do applaud Sophie's courage in surviving her ordeal and telling her story as a warning to others.

If the story is not true, however, I'm not sure what rating I'd give it, and shame on the author and her editor and publisher for manipulating the sympathies of people who are genuinely shocked by these kind of events and concerned for victims' welfare. I felt manipulated and empty as I was reading James Frey's "memoir" and starting to doubt it (even before it was confirmed to be largely fictional), and I had some of the same emotions while reading this book. It doesn't matter at all to me how moving an account is, or what the motivation is for writing it, or even whether it's well written, if what is sold to me as non-fiction turns out to be fabrication.

It's not for me to say, based on little more than suspicion and an uneasy feeling, what is and isn't true. I'm only jotting down my impression. I would, however, advise readers to keep an open mind and listen to their instincts if they feel they are being drawn into a story that may be at least partly embellished. I would have advised Sophie to do very much the same thing. If she had, she might not have become a victim.

HASH(0x9a49cc78) von 5 Sternen Silence of a lamb 2. Oktober 2012
Von John Smith - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
This certainly is not a feel good biography but it is one of tragedy and triumph. While the content is likely to make you want to lock away your daughters and never let them out of your sight again the book itself is well written and it certainly takes hold of you much in the same way Sophie was taken hold of by her captor.

I do admire Sophie for having the courage to try and piece her life back together after all that she went through. She has already walked a long road and I am sure there are still many dark days ahead. I do however wonder if 'Trafficked' is the right title for the book as this certainly is not a classic case of what it means to be trafficked. I guess like so many other readers I was left frustrated that she never tried to get away but then again I have never been in a situation where I was paralysed by fear. Sophie asks the same question of herself too and is unable to find an answer. This is unfortunately another case of silence of a lamb but at least she did finally get out of it many others are not so fortunate.

For a gripping but at times frustrating read it is well worth the effort! Wishing Sophie all the best as she seeks to use this situation for good.
