Novel Taps in to Current Climate of Increased Human Trafficking

Human trafficking is not a problem relegated to other parts of the world; in fact, it occurs in the United States every day in suburban neighborhoods and urban streets fueled by a sex-on-demand society. Xulon Press author Megan Whitson Lee’s new release, All That Is Right and Holy (paperback), focuses on the damaging consequences of pornography and its dangerous link to prostitution and sex trafficking, and the painful ripple effects of sexual addiction, the bonds of which can only be broken through God’s redemptive and healing power.

Says Lee, “The novel is highly relevant to the current climate of increased trafficking in persons due to demand. According to the State Department’s 2007 Trafficking in Persons report, more than 800,000 people are trafficked yearly across international borders. Current economic conditions across the globe elevate the incidences of sex trafficking. Desperate circumstances render women vulnerable to those in the market of exploitation and selling sex.

The author–who holds a Master of Fine Arts in creative writing and a Bachelor of Arts in music from George Mason University–has done extensive reading and research on sex trafficking, sex addiction, and the dire effects of both on society as a whole. It is her hope that this book will help American society to see how both of these issues destroy lives and families and relegate people to the status of commodities.

Xulon Press, a division of Salem Communications, is the world’s largest Christian publisher, with more than 7,000 titles published to date. Retailers may order All That Is Right and Holy through Ingram Book Company and/or Spring Arbor Book Distributors. All That Is Right and Holy is available online through xulonpress.com/bookstore, amazon.com, and barnesandnoble.com.
