Pricless by Tom Davis


Update: Congratulations to Rachel Webb, the winner of the book giveaway!

One word: Amazing.

Priceless is Tom Davis's second novel. He picks up with Stuart Daniels again, a photojournalist whose world has been rocked by his encounter with an orphan in Swaziland (in the first novel, Scared) and by God bringing him to his knees. Stuart is now on assignment to do a story about HIV/AIDS in Russia and how it is affecting orphans in that country. However, everything takes a huge twist and he ends up learning more than he wanted to know about a child prostitution ring.

Again, the style of writing is what I would call "realistic fiction." These specific events didn't happen to this specific person, but it's all based on truth. It's not that it could happen ... it's that it does happen. Over and over. To lots of girls and boys. All over the world. It's both hard to read (because it's real) and hard to put down (because it's so fascinating). A great novel with biblical truths packed in. I pray that people who read this book will find themselves aware of realities that they absolutely cannot ignore. This isn't make-believe, people!

I would HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone and everyone. Parents, you might want to use a little caution with teenagers, but read it with them!

If you're interested in articles and different things about actual child prostitution, human trafficking, etc., check out the book's website. Lots of great articles and a free 5-day devotional too!

AND ... because I liked it so much ... There's a GIVEAWAY copy up for grabs. All you have to do is go to the book's website and post a comment telling me one fact about human trafficking or child prostitution that you didn't know before now. I'll randomly choose a winner on Monday, July 12 @ noon.

5 stars (out of 5)

The author graciously provided me with a free copy of this book.

  2. Wow, those facts were shocking. I was amazed that 1.2 million children are trafficked every year and only 1-2% are ever rescued. So sad... I want to read Scared as well!

  3. I've read so much about this book and even a few little snippets that have been offered online. Would love to read the whole thing! It's a completely maddening issue...just unreal the things that happen around the world everyday that no one talks about.
