I recently finished reading One Dress. One Year.: One Girl’s Stand Against Human Trafficking by Bethany Winz with Susanna Foth Aughtmon. All I can say is, “Wow.” Bethany’s story is both an incredibly relatable diary and inspiring insight into the horrors of human trafficking. I especially appreciated Bethany’s candor regarding her motivation during The Dress Project. As a long-time Christian who also read Alex and Brett Harris’ Do Hard Things in high school, I was hit hard with her admissions of struggling with perfectionism. This book is not only a chronicle of Bethany’s life during The Dress Project, it is a mirror through which all believers should examine themselves. While Bethany repeatedly calls her readers to join the fight against human trafficking, she also calls them to examine their motivations for doing so. Overall, an excellent and inspiring read. I would definitely recommend this to any and all believers. I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my fair and honest review.
