Seaside Daises is a delightful book about a human trafficking victim who escapes the traffickers, but is fearful of them finding her. We see her attempt to build a life in Southern California with no legal papers. She is befriended by an older woman who helps her get started again. I enjoyed reading Maria Elena’s adventure and how the author wove the story together with people showing up unexpectedly. I have a greater understanding of the traps of human Trafficking and the difficulties for the police and FBI of breaking the complex webs.
