The daring efforts of a single mother to change the life of prostitutes leads her and her family into a shadowy world fraught with perils and danger. Hers is a story so packed with chilling twists and precarious turns that it seems fiction, but this is the true life experience of Becky Usry and her family as they gradually, but inexorably, become caught up in the welfare of the Sisterhood of the Night. Countering the glamorous images of Pretty Woman and the Mayflower Madam, Becky's story is filled with harrowing details of life on the streets. It sheds new light on the real problems of prostitution: the power struggle between organized crime and the law; and the victimization of men, women, and children by pimps and johns who treat them as objects to be bought, sold, or permanently disposed of when necessary.
