The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because I'm not sure I could "LOVE" a book with this content! However, I do applaud the author & all involved in this very necessary cause! It has grabbed both my heart & my husband's heart big time. We have been reading & learning as much as we can over the last few years. Sobering to know that Human Trafficking is alive & well within our Canadian borders, but so important to be aware of.

I will never look at an unmarked van in the same way again.

Invisible Chains describes, in detail, the Canadian side of human trafficking - of all manner of frightened and disandvantaged human beings - many of whom thought they were coming to a better life.

I appreciated the index at the back of the book to volunteer associations in every Canadian province.

Benjamin Perrin details the way to work together to diminish the success of such terrible abuse and crime.

I have now read several books on human trafficking and *Invisible Chains* is probably the best book on this subject I have read so far.

It gives a detailed analysis on trafficking in Canada as well as the insufficient and ineffective ways Canada has tried, or more accurately, hasn't tried to tackle human trafficking.

The statistics and stories that appear will shock and anger you. This book is a must read.
