While we have all heard of topics like human trafficking or prostitution, it is daunting to read such an in-depth depiction into the sordid mess that it is. On the outbreak of war, Belle Reilly's husband Jimmy enlists and heads for the deadly trenches of northern France. Não é uma leitura fácil mas que recomendo sem dúvida tanto pela pesquisa da autora como pela própria personagem, um exemplo coragem. Belle has no concept of what happens upstairs until one day she see something that changes her life for ever.

Snatched from the streets near her house and transported against her will into a very sinister world where she has no control of her own fate. Mas passada esta dificuldade inicial e tendo-me abstraído um pouco da idade da personagem, achei a história absolutamente envolvente. You can smell the stench, see the intense poverty, the depths of disappear, and understand why people were willing to do anything to survive. But my biggest source of disbelief with this book (aside from being oblivious from the fact that she lived in a whorehouse) was Belle's unwavering innocence and determination. Lesley Pearse is one of the UK's best-loved novelists with fans across the globe and sales of over 2 million copies of her books to date.Mas louvo a ASA por ter traduzido o livro numa linguagem directa e frontal sem meias palavras nem rodeios, aqui não há meios termos, sendo usado muitas vezes o vocábulo "puta".

However her fate is in dire straits when she is bought by another brothel owner, this time in New Orleans. Temos Ettienne, o homem encarregue de levar Belle para a América, e apesar desta tarefa ilegal, percebemos que é um homem com um bom coração e um trabalho ingrato. This all changes when she finds herself the only witness to a brutal murder, she is snatched from the street and her 'education' into the dark, violent underworld of prostitution and crime begins.At the mercy of desperate men who crave her beauty and will do anything to keep her, Belle's dreams of home, family and freedom appear futile. Adorei a tenacidade da heroína, a sua audácia, inconformismo e força de vontade; roguei por justiça, por uma única oportunidade de fuga, por alguém que a ajudasse realmente; revoltei-me contra a crueldade e falta de valores morais.

Não quero com isto dizer que é um mau livro, mas dada a sua classificação por aqui e a potencialidade do tema, soube-me a pouco. While this made the book hard to read at times, it gave the story the gravity and openness it needed and was owed. The book set in the 1900s London tells the story of Belle, a fifteen year old girl who is sold and forced into prostitution at her very young age.I have not read many books that delve into the sordid and frankly, very disturbing world of human trafficking. Her father was away at sea and it was only when a neighbour saw Lesley and her brother playing outside without coats on that suspicion was aroused - their mother had been dead for some time.

For example, it felt like 5 minutes after being sold into prostitution, she just goes, "I want to be the best and highest paid girl here!While Belle is a very compelling read, it is my belief that the topic could have been broached in a much better way. Lesley Pearse is the master of strong heroines struggling through difficult circumstances and Belle really is one of the strongest and passionate characters of any of her novels. This book will make you look at all sides of prostitution and the women who are forced to live a life servicing men.
