St. Agnes' Place deals with the lives of those affected by child sex trafficking in the United States. It also addresses the pain of betrayal and learning how to love again.
It is told through the eyes of Shawnsy Stevens, a newly-divorced thirty-something who finds herself accepting a job at St. Agnes'; a place of hope and recovery for young women who are trying to leave the street life. There she meets Leelee, Keisha, Amy, Vicky and Rain. Each of these women has a story to tell, as they struggle to fight their personal demons.
As the story unfolds, Shawnsy Stevens develops a strong camaraderie with the girls while falling in love with the handsome and charismatic Detective Eric McDermott. His sole mission is to rescue trafficked girls off the streets.
Each of the women encounters unexpected news and setbacks, but ultimately recognizes the healing power of forgiveness. In a climactic end, they make choices that set the course for the rest of their lives.
St. Agnes' Place is a place where love greets you at the door.
