A WALK ACROSS THE SUN is  the  haunting and heartbreaking story of two young Indian sisters whose lives are transformed when a tsunami leaves them orphans and they become caught in the web of the international sex trade. An idealistic, but soul weary American lawyer learns about their story and begins to unravel the buying and selling of children across international borders for the sex and vows to unite the two sisters. Elegantly written and thoroughly researched, it's hard to believe that this is Corban Addison's first novel. It is at once enlightening but also a satisfying book that will keep you turning the pages as you share the thread of hope and the thread of fear  that weigh equally upon the reader. Don't miss it.
