Endorsements and Reviews

JOHN GRISHAM

“Since my first novel was released over 20 years ago, I have been presented with many opportunities to endorse the works of other authors hoping to find a publisher. I have always declined, until now. Corban Addison has written a novel that is beautiful in its story and also important in its message. A Walk Across the Sun deserves a wide audience. And I strongly suspect that Mr. Addison will be heard from again and again.”

PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

“In his debut novel, lawyer Addison uncovers the labyrinthine underside of human trafficking in this dazzling transcontinental story about the power of conviction, the bonds of family, and the tenacity of love . . . The novel successfully explicates the magnitude of the human trafficking business, the complexities of international legalities, and the impact of the Internet’s role in this horrifying underworld.”

LIBRARY JOURNAL

“This chilling, suspenseful, and powerful debut weaves fictional characters into the reality of contemporary slavery . . . The story is compelling, but the message is greater and will leave an impact on every person who picks up the book. Readers will mourn the injustices depicted and celebrate the triumphs long after the last page is turned.”
