Priceless, by Joel and Luke Smallbone, is a novelization of the motion picture. James Stevens and his wife are on a weekend get away when they are involved in a traffic accident and his wife is killed. James is left alone to care for their daughter, Emmy, and is not handling life well at all. In just a short time he is being faced with bills he can not pay. In an effort to make the money he needs, he turns to dealing drugs and gets caught by the police. After being released from prison, his friend, who connected him with the drug dealer, buys him an old vehicle, gets him an apartment and a job. Emmy is living with his mother and he does not get to see her often. But to get his daughter back he has to have a proper home, income of $3000 a month and six times that in the bank for emergencies. So his friend hooks him up with a semi driving job, that turns out to be linked to sex trafficking. But James finds out what is really happening to Antonia and her sister Maria, he stays and does what needs to be done to save them.
This is a very good and very powerful story. The story is very realistic and shows what James would do to get Emmy back. The story is a sad story that also shows the compassion in James. Not everyone will enjoy this story, as human trafficking is a tragic topic. But the story is well written and I wanted to just keep reading it to see what James would do. The story is full of action and is suspenseful with a touch of romance.
I received a copy of this book from Worthy Publishing and First Look Blog Tour in exchange for an honest review.
