Secret prisoners behind closed doors, they were real-life Cinderellas-- with no hope of rescue. Nowhere to run...nowhere to hide...nowhere to turn...
Enter today's sordid world of slaves and masters, where innocent young girls are sold to the rich, and subjected to horrifying degradation.
Beautiful Laxmi was the servant of two Arab princesses who regularly beat her and even yanked out her gold teeth. Bleeding and hysterical, she escaped-- only to be returned to the evil sisters.
Helen was allowed two to four hours of sleep a night by the married couple who kept her. Rarely did a day pass that she wasn't slapped, kicked, punched, and beaten by this cruel doctor and his wife.
Marita was sold by her husband to his best friend as a sex slave. He forced her to endure horrific beatings-- often locked in wooden stocks.
Virtual captives in the mansions of the rich and famous, they risked their lives to tell their stories for the first time, in Wensley Clarkson's Slave Girls.
With 8 pages of revealing photos.
