    2. As seen on my blog Oh lookie There goes my faith in humanity again waves goodbye for the millionth time this month This book pried my eyes open, yes, PRIED I was aware of the horrors of human trafficking before a 32 BILLION dollar profit for this sick bastards , but not through such personal accounts, and I definitely did not feel the level of sickness, and disgust this book allowed me to feel Roberta Gately included some heart wrenching stories of pain in this pages, so I will start off with th [...]

    5. 3.5 stars The Bracelet is a fairly easy read about a very tough subject human trafficking Abby, a nurse, is running away from a failed relationship in the United States She ends up in Pakistan, one of the most dangerous places in the world, as a UN worker When she is there, she meets a journalist, Nick, who is chasing a story about human trafficking Meanwhile, Abby, through her own work and her own relationships in Pakistan, becomes aware of the issue with human trafficking She also comes acros [...]


    6. 2,5I ve read some books that portray the abuse that many women have suffered due to sexism or some other sort of prejudice, namely in the Middle East I think that is a subject that needs to be discussed and brought to the media so that people realize that this is real and it is important to fight against it, and eradicate such atrocity So it s always good to know that some authors are brave enough to tackle such a delicate and meaningful topic.Also, the topics for discussion at the end of the bo [...]


    7. Human trafficking remains the world s dirty little secret Roberta Gately Commendable seldom leaps to mind as the pertinent word to describe chick lit, but commendable chick lit this one is Boston nurse, Abby Monroe, wants a husband and meaningful work, and when prospects tank on both these fronts, accepts a short term UN job based in Peshawar, Pakistan Initially stuck behind a desk, she s surprised how dull her assignment is until New York Times reporter, Nick, requests her help in questioning g [...]


    8. Timely subject, great characters needed depth , insightful look at the politics of the middle east and the workings of the UN The crime of human trafficking is presented in riveting, humanistic, horrifying reality While reading this book, I found myself wanting I read it in a little over a day, so it certainly kept my attention The coincidence of the main character, Abby, witnessing a crime in Geneva in the beginning of the book and the involvement with the perpetrators later was a bit contriv [...]



    9. I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest, unbiased review The Bracelet follows the story of Abby, who, after being dumped the day after her 30th birthday and losing her job due to layoffs, runs away from her life by taking a job with the UN, as a nurse providing vaccinations in Pakistan While there, Abby is touched by the suffering she sees in the poor, but soon comes to realize there are much bigger problems facing the populations she is sent to serve namely, [...]



    10. The Bracelet is one of those books I requested an ARC of way back when, and let expire Or so I thought Turns out it didn t, and I finally got around to reading the book Bad idea I should have just let it lie on my computer I requested it for the subject matter, and coming from the subcontinent, I m always interested in books set in the general vicinity While I can appreciate that it deals with sex trafficking, I really hated the way it was dealt with superficially This is just a book where a whi [...]


    11. Abby Monroe is in Geneva for orientation after having lost her job as a nurse in Boston, where her position was slashed because of the recession Her love life had also crashed when Eric, the love of her life, broke up with her by e mail.Abby s parents had wanted her to move in with them in Florida, but Abby chose to go work for the U.N to get away from her heartbreak While in Geneva, Abby witnessed a jump or murder from an office complex The young woman has either jumped, fallen or was pushed ou [...]


    12. I was wanting to like this book, largely because it deals with a serious, largely under reported issue, but in the end I found the writing weak, the characters not at all realistic and the story not believable as a result.The plotline of the book is that Abby, totally inexperienced with worldwide humanitarian work, takes a job in Peshawar, Pakistan, working on a vaccination program On the way to Pakistan, she witnesses a murder in Geneva, that is ultimately connected to her experienced in Pakist [...]


    13. Read my full review here mimi cyberlibrarian.c The Bracelet by Roberta Gately is a fictionalized look at the serious problem of human trafficking through the eyes of a UN nurse in Pakistan Abby needed a big change a romance that she had depended upon was over Hurt and angry, the idea of working for the UN for a while seemed like a good idea Get away Make a fresh start.Her first assignment is Peshawar Pakistan where she is to evaluate an immunization clinic for UNICEF Before she arrived in Pakist [...]


    14. THE BRACELET begins with Abby, a UN aid worker witnessing what she believes to be a murder on her last night of training in Geneva As Abby arrives in Pakistan to begin her UN work at the vaccination clinic, she finds that she can t get the woman who dies or the bracelet she was wearing out of her mind or her dreams Abby ends up taking the UN job after two upheavals in her life First, her job at a hospital in New Orleans is gone when Hurricane Katrina destroys the hospital Then she starts a new l [...]


    15. This book was fascinating and tragic at the same time It gave me a look inside the world of human trafficking at a time when my local church is getting involved in a local program dealing with human trafficking It is really scary to me to think that there may be women in my own community who are trafficking victims but that is a story for antoher day back to The Bracelet.Abby chose to go to Peshawar to get away from a broken heart and an unsatisfying job She wasn t really thinking about where sh [...]

    17. The Bracelet1.5L argomento trattato importante, difficile e interessante, sicuramente fa riflettere ma la Gately l ha trattato veramente male Purtroppo il libro di una banalit sconcertante e sovraccarico di informazioni inutili non c bisogno di spiegare cos la tratta degli esseri umani inverosimile che Abby abbia bisogno di spiegazioni, dove ha vissuto finora Nel mondo dei Puffi.La protagonista uno dei personaggi pi odiosi di cui ho letto Perfetta in tutto, l ultima arrivata ma sa tutto lei, fa [...]


    18. The Bracelet is an easy to read novel about a not so easy topic human trafficking As I read The Bracelet, the term that came to mind was human trafficking lite Abby Monroe is an unbelievably naive young woman who has run off to Pakistan as a UN aide worker Her decision to enter this unstable security situation was made hastily, post breakup, and as a result, Abby had no idea what she was up against For example, I found myself annoyed at Abby, who gallivanted off to Peshawar, never having heard o [...]


    19. I am loving Roberta Gately and and becoming such a huge fan The Bracelet was a book that I got to read on my way home from California It s an easy read that keeps you on your toes and turning the page This story touches a difficult topic that many of us know about, human trafficking, but not too many of us knows exactly what and how this is still going on I think she did an incredible job tackling on this subject for this being a fictional story I honestly was glued to this story just as I was [...]


    20. A story that opens up aspects of one of the oft forgotten crime of human trafficking, The Bracelet is a thought provoking read Kudos to the author for writing about such a tough topic and the widespread, global reach of human trafficking Poverty, corruption in every level of government and humanitarian agencies, greed, as well as plain desperation all contribute to this in so many ways The sad tales of the women and children who end up being the victims bring the reader a harsh dose of reality n [...]


    21. I received The Bracelet for free as a First Read The premise drew me in a young nurse, Abby, tries to find herself by taking a job working for the UN in Peshawar, Pakistan Abby saw something during her training that she was not supposed to see, the death of a woman that may not have been accidental Nick, a reporter for the New York Times, has arranged to interview Abby for a piece he s writing on the work of the UN in the region Together, Abby and Nick must work out how the dead woman is connect [...]

    23. I enjoyed this book entertaining read that also addresses a serious global issue the horrendous, twisted underworld of human trafficking But it definitely had some weaknesses too although the victimized women and children in this novel were sensitively portrayed and their stories were presented with a haunting blend of emotion and gritty realism, the two main characters, Abby and Nick, seemed like cardboard cutouts in comparison In particular, I was often very frustrated and annoyed by the Abby [...]


    24. Whew What an ending Tanker trucks exploding, helicopters landing, people running for their lives Nurse Abby Howell has run away from New York, from a failed relationship when she enlists with the UN and is sent to Pakistan to keep statistics on infant immunizations Sounds like a pretty easy desk job Not after Abby visits the refugee camp and witnesses, first hand, the deplorable conditions, the lack of basic necessities, and the wall filled to overflowing with pictures of The Lost children who h [...]


    25. An deeply emotional topic, human trafficking Yet, it happens every day around the world, even our own backyards, while we are somewhat oblivious.This book is about a UN worker and a reporter who try to do I use the word try very loosely, as its the most difficult task to take on Terror, fear, and bone chilling feelings are most of what you take out of a situation as that one Having to find a way to stay safe and get word out about what is happening, reminds me why most of the world keeps quiet [...]


    26. very nice easy read book something you can take with you on the airplane easy to follow story It was a nice switch for me after reading too much of the classical books The one thing I did not like about the book is the end it felt like everything happend a little too fast I had to read 2 3 times the same paragraph trying to understand what happened to the main bad guy The end was, of course, very predictable, but even though I expected it to be like that, I felt like everything happend to fast a [...]


    27. After reading the description of this book, I was expecting a bit of a gritty kind of book which isn t really what this is Even though it wasn t what I was expecting it to be it was still a pretty good book I liked the story line, it was easy to read and stay in the flow of the story The two main characters are Nick and Abby, I can t say I ever warmed up to Abby and while I liked Nick s character I never really saw him as a romantic interest I actually found myself wishing the romantic aspect o [...]


    28. Despite the sometimes corny and repetitive dialog and the usual girl meets boy and falls in love sub story line, I liked this book The topic of human sex trafficking was interesting as a main topic and the author did a good job of holding my attention throughout the story It was an easy and quick read This is far from the best book that I have ever read, but since I paid only 2 for the book at a non profit fundraiser, I feel as though it was worth my expense and time If you can look past the fac [...]
