Book: Fallen: Out of the Sex Industry & Into the Arms of the Savior
Author: Annie Lobert
Fallen is the true story of Annie Lobert, who in an attempt to free herself from an abusive home life, secured a productive professional position in Minneapolis. She was a very talented musician, who enjoyed playing at local venues. Searching for love, she ended up in several abusive relationships, even so far as being trafficked by her ‘boyfriend’.
Eventually, Annie ends up in Las Vegas, as an escort, where her trafficker took all her money and beat her. After sixteen years enduring arrests, beatings, and in great sorrow, Annie found her salvation in God’s light, after a nearly fatal overdose.
Annie now serves in ministry alongside husband, Oz Fox, dealing with men and women who have fallen victim of human trafficking.
