Somaly Mam was abandoned as a baby and looked after by her grandmother until she disappeared. She was then taken into the care of a man she called 'grandfather', but was treated no better than an unpaid servant. sold. Raped at twelve, Somaly was forced to marry at fifteen and then sold to a brothel. She endured years of abuse before managing to escape.

The Road of Lost Innocence is a moving account of a traumatic childhood and also the inspirational story of a determined and courageous woman devoted to helping other girls caught up in the illegal sex trade and violent underworld in Cambodia.

In 1997 Somaly Mam co-founded AFESIP to combat trafficking in women and children for sexual slavery.

MEDIA REVIEWS
** 'Sold into prostitution in Cambodia as a small child, Mam has survived a trauma that is almost beyond the imaginative reach of memoir ... driven by a sense of purpose greater than the self, and related with a haunting directness * GUARDIAN *
** 'Somaly Mam is my candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize. She is living proof that one woman can change the fate of others * AYAAN HIRSI ALI *
** 'Written deftly and sparely, this story easily transcends the current rash of 'misery * life-stories. Somaly Mam has no truck with sensationalism or self pity: action for change is patently what she is all about.' *
GOOD HOUSEKEEPING * ** 'This is a book about how one person's courage can make a difference' *
