Join Patricia Hunt Holmes as she discusses her novel, "Searching for Pilar," the story
of a young wife and mother who is abducted in Mexico City and forced into sex slavery
in Houston. Can she survive long enough for her brother to find her? This action-packed
tale of the Bayou City breaks open the world of sex trafficking while exploring human
