Betrayed by Morgan St. James
Imagine the terror of waking up in a strange bedroom bound and gagged. Teenager Laurel Murphy was a promising ballerina destined to have a brilliant career until she was kidnapped, sold into a brothel where she was raped, brutalized and finally left for dead. Contrary to what the kidnappers thought, she didn’t die. As Laurel rebuilt her body and tried to build a new life, deep within her soul she dealt with the need for revenge. Her journey from terror to success and the high and low points of the life that followed will grab your heartstrings and not let go. Inspired by true events, this work of fiction begins in the late 1950s, but human trafficking of American teenagers is even more prevalent now than it was then.
