A subtle tidbit from the writing of Story of a Stolen Girl. Do you remember the name of the private gambling club where Darby’s abduction begins? The Belaruse. Why that name? I chose it because “Insider New Monkey” identified the popular vacation destination, Belarus, as #1 in their article titled “16 Worst Countries for Human Trafficking in 2018.”

I removed the "e" to create a subtext, to serve as a springboard to conversations about how as individuals we have choices to make about the countries we support, not only politically and financially as a country, but as an individual as well.

How often do you think we consider such things in our vacation planning?” I’d love to hear your thoughts.
