Overview

The White Umbrella: Walking with Survivors of Sex Trafficking by Mary Frances Bowley

Stories of survivors of sex-trafficking.

Sex trafficking. We hear about it on the nightly news and in special interest stories from around the world, but it occurs daily in communities all around us. Every year, thousands of young women are forced into sexual exploitation. Most are under the age of 18. The damage this causes to their emotions and souls is immeasurable.

But they are not without hope.

The White Umbrella tells stories of survivors as well as those who came alongside to help them to recovery. It describes the pain and the strength of these young women and those who held the “white umbrella” of protection and purity over them on the road to restoration.

This book offers principles and guidance to anyone with a heart for these hurting young women and a desire to help. It is an ideal resource for individuals or organizations seeking to learn what they can do to assist these victims in becoming whole again.

AMAZING book. Opened my eyes even more to the incomprehensible problem of modern day slavery that is happening right under our noses...more slaves now than in any other time in history. Also, opened my eyes to the fact that 1 in 4 girls is sexually abused before 17 years old. Those are only the reported cases, so I am thinking it is probably more like 50% of all girls. As a future school counselor, this book is filled with practical clinical application, as well as stories of hope that encourage you to ACT. TODAY.

As someone who is involved with survivors who have been trafficked and/or abused I really liked this book as a way to inform people about the need to for help and to share the hope that is being offered to many young women. I think anyone would benefit from reading this book. I don't think you can read this book and not be moved to do something to help. Mary Frances Bowley runs Wellspring Living, a ministry that helps girls that have either chosen to leave the trafficking life or were forced to leave. The book is full of stories from people who work with Wellspring Ministry or from the girls who have been through, or are going through, the program. This book offers hope and gives you ways you can help too.
