THE ROAD OF LOST INNOCENCE The True Story of a Cambodian Heroine

by | Read by Tanya Eby Sirois

Biography & Memoir • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Somaly Mam was an illiterate, impoverished, and deferential Cambodian orphan who was no more than 12 when she was forced into prostitution. Remarkably, she overcame beatings, rapes, and a life of deprivation to save thousands of girls from her own fate and worse. Tanya Eby Sirois does a first-rate job capturing the author's quiet but powerful essence in this inspiring memoir, which is aided by a clear emotional connection between narrator and subject. The narration is soft- spoken and compassionate, but potent, growing in strength as Somaly Mam finds an outlet for her rage. Sirois keeps her voice light and slightly breathy, evoking a sensitive Cambodian girl who, through incredible hardship and determination, grows into an international champion for the fight against child prostitution and slavery.
