Charlie Daniels started her career as a streetwalker when she was a seventeen-year-old single mother. Since she had virtually no qualifications, the streets seemed to offer the best way to get a comfortable and exciting life. Eventually she was forced to hand her over daughter to her own foster mother, just as she herself was given away nearly 20 years before. Charlie became one of the most successful Madams in the country, with a string of 50 girls working for her. By the time she was in her thirties, she had reached the pinnacle of her profession—but she had also realized just how shallow and meaningless her life was, and how much she wanted to get her daughter back before it was too late.
