One of the protagonists is coerced into having sex with a man in exchange for his help to get her and her father passage to the United States. He then uses the fact that she had sex with him to control her in other ways, including forcing her to become engaged to him. Another character describes his experience of being tortured. One of the torture methods was anal rape with an object. Worthy of note: there are many detailed scenes of domestic violence of a daughter at the hands of her father throughout the book.
