I have an absolute passion for books. It all came from my mum and dad when I was a child. A place to escape and a place to learn.
I have been asked recently by a colleague and friend for a list of books that I have as resources for the work I do with those in prostitution and victims of Human Trafficking.
This is by no means an exhaustive list but it’s definitely worth a look if you are wanting to know where to go for information.
