Book Recommendation: Priceless [& a Giveaway]

I am sure I've mentioned it before, but I tend to start books and never finish them. I'm a good starter. Every now and then I'll finish a book within a reasonable time (a month). Very rarely do I read a book in all my spare time and finish it within a day or two. Well, guess what I did this week.

I received Priceless: A Novel on the Edge of the World 
in the mail last week from the author and had it finished within 2 days. It's good!! 

What I loved most about the book is that while it is not a true story, it is dripping with reality. This story is set in Moscow and the sex trade industry is the backdrop. From the first chapter until the end you won't want to put it down. It is an eye opening account of a very real reality for 27 million people in our world. Are you passionate about people and helping those who suffer? Then this is a book for you. Even if you are just up for a great story, this is for you.  

This is the second novel by Tom Davis. The first novel, Scared: A Novel on the Edge of the World
, is equally as riveting. Both novels clearly show Tom's passion for the orphans and the victims in our world. It is no surprise that he is the founder and director of Children's Hope Chest (an organization worth your time to check out). Tom's blog is also worth subscribing to.

Want to read the first chapter for free to see if you like it? Visit for a behind the scenes video and a free download of the first chapter!  

And now for the giveaway portion! I'm giving away a copy of Priceless (courtesy of Tom Davis) to one lucky reader. All you have to do is leave a comment! The contest will be open until Tuesday, June 22nd at 8 p.m. EST. 


Fine Print: I received my copy of Priceless for free from the author in exchange for a "honest, frank review." So there you have it.
