Snatched from Innocence | Lisa George

by | Apr 29, 2019 | Featured Article | 0 comments

As I sit here writing this blog I am grateful to the Authors ’s Lounge for giving me this opportunity to let all you readers out there know about my book.

Writing a novel has always been my dream and desire but thought the whole process was not possible due to numerous factors. Finally, two years ago, I decided to take a chance in writing. Now, what would I write my first novel about? I questioned.

Some years back, the topic of trafficking came heavily upon my mind-so much so, that I feel led to research all that entails the subject. Becoming more and more horrified with each article and testimonial I read, I found myself wanting to reach out to the victims, to try and help them somehow- not exactly sure how I would attempt it.

For those reading from the Author’s Lounge, I want to tell you that the desire for writing a book whelmed up inside me once more and through much prayer and guidance, I decided to write my first book on this particular subject.

The storyline is fictional with a fictional family but what transpires within the pages is what really happens throughout the world today.

The reader quickly falls in love with Adalyn, the main character and is distraught to their very core on what she has to endure. Also, I need to point out that whatever place you hold within your own family unit-whether a parent, grandparent, sibling, aunt or uncle, etc. you can feel agony for the Saunders family.

Life can take you by surprise at a moments notice. That is why, it is wise, not to take for granted all those that hold dear to you and think that all is okay and will be fine,  just as the Saunders too, realized this. For living in a town of Battleford Saskatchewan, with a population of a little more than four thousand people, a happy twelve year-old Adalyn Sanders was abducted.

Snatched from her family and sold into trafficking, she suddenly became aware of what no young girl at the age of twelve should know. She is now plunged into a life of darkness and what would become a nightmare. Well hidden from the authorities she strived to survive day by day the world that now had become her life.

It would take a miracle for police to find her and as her devastated family helped in the search, the question must be asked! Would they find their sweet innocent Adalyn ever again?

I want to let those of you in this Author’s Lounge know that writing this novel was a very difficult challenge and I struggled in doing so because of this heinous crime. Although the book is fictional and written on a smaller scale, it is an example of what these victims have to endure. The harsh reality is that people like Adalyn are exploited and traumatized in a much more violent way than I have portrayed in the book and these victims have to live it. I can’t even imagine what they are going through or what they are feeling.  I hope to shine a light on this horrific crime and to tell you how God can help restore a person in any situation no matter how bad it is. Hopefully this will inspire others to join in to help stop the vicious cycle of trafficking.

So, I got a call. This very kind and patient man named Danver Maglasang walked me through this process to showcase my book, my baby, my hopes and dreams to share with more people than I can reach alone. What a wonderful fellow. I love him. Earlie Masciantonio

Thank you, ReadersMagnet for reviewing my manuscript! Before, I wasn’t really sure if I should push forward my plans of self-publishing my book because I am not confident with my words. Your editorial services and your honesty made gave me the boost I needed. Now I am excited to take a step... further. I feel inspired. Great job, ReadersMagnet!read more
