Silenced No More: Surviving My Journey to Hell and Back (Hardcover)
Sarah Ransome was recruited into Jeffrey Epstein's network when she was 22, during her first months in Manhattan, and in America. Her desire to network in hopes of getting into the Fashion Institute of Technology were destroyed overnight and Sarah found herself imprisoned by a web of co-conspirators on an island.
“Though my own story is centered on sexual abuse, all trauma lives in the body. It changes the shape of one’s soul. By sharing my testimony—by using my book as a platform to start an evocative conversation, among all readers, and particularly among women—I hope to see both minds and laws changed. More than anything, I want to encourage a culture in which women, even if they haven’t led the perfect lives, even if they’re not proud of every one of their choices, still feel the right to stand in their truth. That, in these years, is what I’m still learning to do.”
After enduring unimaginable trauma, Sarah bravely pulls back the curtain on a hell that only those who entered it can truly testify to. Her eloquent, inspiring, and detailed testimony completely changes our understanding of the depths and depravity of this complex and morally bankrupt sex-trafficking ring and gives us hope for how the power of words can heal and transform.
Sarah Ransome is a daughter, sister, speaker and advocate for women and sexual abuse survivors. As a justice warrior, she strives to be an educator for the vulnerable.
