I enjoyed this book very much. At first glance there does not seem much in common with a girl working in her family's shop in Albania and a wife and mother living in London.
The girl wants to get away from her mundane life in Albania where she can see her future life - finding a husband, marrying and having children with no escape from drudgery.
The woman has decided she wants to return to the village life she had growing up in Wales with no mobile phones, no internet or other "modern" technology.
The author captures the horror of human trafficking and how easy it is for girls to be lured by the promise of a career in a new country which turns out to be nothing of the sort.
The author has manage to capture all the horror and uncertainty in both women's lives and illustrate how, sometimes, what we already have is better than what we think we want.
I look forward to reading more Helen Matthews in the future.
