And now, here’s Lisa!
A couple of years ago, I wrote a book set in Africa (Blood Ransom) and the background of the story surrounded the issue of human trafficking and the slave trade. At the time, I didn’t realize that human trafficking was an issue in the US, but the more I read, the more I realized that this doesn’t just effect people living halfway around the world. It’s a problem facing people right where we live and work.
But for an issue that seems to far from our day-to-day life, what can we really do about it?
First of all pray. Pray for the men, women, and children involved in this horrific crime.
Second, inform yourself about what is happening. Churches are getting involved, and there are groups like Free the Captives (www.freethecaptiveshouston.com) who are making a difference.
Thirdly, go where you hear God sending you and reach out to those around you. It might mean getting involved with a group who is specifically fighting human trafficking. Or it might be a hurting neighbor down the street, a lonely teen in your church’s youth group, or a forgotten elderly person in your apartment building. Through His strength, we can make a difference--wherever we are--one person at a time.
Here’s the blurb from my latest romantic suspense, Dangerous Passage, that deals with the issue of domestic slave trade.
“When two Jane Does are killed on the outskirts of Atlanta, Georgia, detective and behavioral specialist Avery North discovers they share something in common--a tattoo of a magnolia on their shoulders. Suspecting a serial killer, Avery joins forces with medical examiner Jackson Bryant to solve the crimes and prevent another murder. But it doesn't take long for them to realize that there is much more to the case than meets the eye. As they venture deep into a sinister world of human trafficking, Avery and Jackson are taken to the very edge of their abilities--and their hearts.
Dangerous Passage exposes a fully-realized and frightening world where every layer peeled back reveals more challenges ahead. Romantic suspense fans will be hooked from the start by Lisa Harris's first installment of the new Southern Crimes series.”
Dangerous Passage is now available as a paperback and ebook!
