I’m Crazy For Tom Davis’ Priceless

I read Priceless in 24 hours!  I’m thrilled to help launch the Priceless Blog Tour and spread the word to my readers about this incredible fictional account of an orphaned girl trapped in the sex trade.  Tom Davis rocks!!  He found the way to take a very deep subject that most of us have little or no knowledge about and brings it alive in a riveting novel.  I talked to Tom on the phone yesterday and admitted that this was my first Tom Davis book I have read (gasp!)  I know, but my only excuse is a 2 year old Princess named Zoie who keeps me occupied day and night.  I vowed to read everything in his http://www.sethbarnes.com/blogphotos/sethbarnes/www/Tom_Davis_1.jpgcollection!!  What’s really crazy, he told me that if you read the book Priceless in your book club… he will meet with your group via Skype or conference call (email hannah@hopechest.org) to discuss the book and the hope of making a difference in an orphans life.  We are all Priceless.

“Child sex slavery is one of the most hideous crimes possible. Diving into the stories of young children who have lost their childhoods to brothels, pimps, and johns is beyond heartbreaking. The more you learn, the more unsettled your spirit will become. The learning resources here are designed to unsettle your spirit and empower your actions. You will know the work of the enemy, and it will leave a stain on your spirit. Move from here to Act on behalf of these children. You are their hope for prevention, for rescue, and for restoration.”  Tom Davis

If you have read Priceless, I want to know what you think about the book?  You can share in the comments your own book review. (thanks!)
