Overview


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.

    WOW!!!! WOW!!! WOW!!!!

    I only give this a 4 star because it wasn't the most exciting or of writing systems, but it was well written and the story is absolutely insane. This poor girl never had a chance and just couldn't catch a break. I am in utter amazement of her resilience and ability to keep on going. The series of events that take place in her life many of us would be broken and scared from just a single one of them. She endured multiple horrific life, mental and emotional altering events and STILL is alive and able to share her story. What happened to her and has happen (continues to happen) to so many young women in this world is disgusting, horrific and absolutely heart breaking. Bless this woman for speaking out and against the devilsh beings that put her through so much. Awareness is a start in the right direction and she is absolutely a hero for sharing her story. Even if enlightens one indidivual she has made a difference.

    For an eerily disturbing story, Slave Girl is well written and is very captivating. We learn a lot about the murky world of prostitution, organised crime, corruption and deprivation. It is a wold that Sarah got plunged into, suffered a lot, agonised, but never lost hope. She came out of this hell with a lesson for us all. Never give up, especially when you are subjected to misery or a fate that you got tricked into through no fault of yours. Sarah Forsyth's Slave girl comes after reading Janvier Chando's The Grandmothers, and Stacey Danson's Empty Chairs. The terrible combination of sex and drugs are well highlighted here.
