    Passport Through Darkness is an autobiography of a woman's journey in one of the darkest land in the world, Sudan. Kimberly L. Smith was a successful woman with everything that she could ever achieve in her American Dream and yet, she was discontented and dissatisfied. Until one day when she dared to allow God to use her and her husband, Milton. Their lives has never been the same since then. I found this autobiography an enjoyable read. Smith writes in brutal honesty as she gives us gut-wrenching glimpses of life in Sudan. She is not a professional writer but manages to communicate her message in a simple and effective manner. Smith is also honest in the book and does not try to put up a facade to hide her character flaws. There is many stories in it that is both informative and interesting. I found it difficult to put the book down until I finished reading it.

    human trafficking

    As I was reading through this book I have never known how bad the women suffer in other parts of the world. Kim was a devoted wife and mother that went to church and did what she thought God wanted her to do. She had a high paying job with her way to the top and her second husband Milton felt that something was missing in their lives. As all the children were out of the house except two girls, they throught they had everything but they both were still unhappy. As they started to pray about this, it seem that an answer came that Kim didn't want to hear. She wanted to do what God asked but on her own terms.

    This book is really an eye opener and as we think we have it bad here in America, we just don't see what goes on in other parts of the world even though we see some of the things on TV it is not the same as being there. Kimberly and Milton Smith started a organization "Make Way Partners" in which they run and are trying to build the only private and ingeniously based anti-trafficking network in Africa and Eastern Europe. For more information on this project check out their site and read all about it.

    This book was sent to me by The B and B Media Group for my own thoughts and review.
