A few days ago, I read a book that both touched my heart and lit it on fire.
Skye Warren’s Trust In Me tells the story of young woman named Mia. For years, she has remained wedged firmly in the midst of a human trafficking ring owned by a vicious man who pulled her from the gutter and, on a daily basis, tortures and violates her at the various turns of his twisted whims while permitting others to do the same. The only thing that makes her stay is a crucial task involving undercover FBI agent Tyler Martinez that, should said mission fail, would destroy so much more than her life.
I won’t give away everything because I do believe you should read this. Its been said that everyone has a story. Everyone you meet is going through something so be careful how you treat them. Not just that, but it shows you that people are worth fighting for. Just because something isn’t happening to us doesn’t mean that it should be written off.
This book illustrates those lessons and more.
So do yourself a favor and check this out. Skye Warren is not only a master of words but a compassionate demonstrator of the human condition.
Trust In Me is one of the ugliest, most beautiful, most terrifyingly-crushing, and powerful bodies of work I have ever read.
5 stars all way.
