A walk across the sun: a novel by Corban Addison — Teen-age sisters Ahalya and Sita are left orphaned after a tsunami destroys their coastal town. Destitute and alone, they plan to seek refuge in a convent miles away. A driver agrees to take them, but instead he sells the girls to human traffickers. On the other side of the world, Washington lawyer Thomas Clarke takes a sabbatical to escape his own heartache. He volunteers at an international anti-trafficking group in India where he meets Ahalya and Sita and makes it his personal mission to save them.
