Book Review: "Price of Privilege"

I never saw the ending coming, but Jessica Dotta got it exactly right! I just finished reading Book 3 of her Price of Privilege Trilogy: Price of Privilege. Dotta knows how to tell a story well.

Price of Privilege picks up, of course, where Mark of Distinction leaves off. Julia has achieved her happily ever after at last, but one man is determined to steal it away from her and chooses to do so by destroying her and her new husband’s reputations. The two are forced to seek refuge with Julia’s unpredictable, calculating, and self-absorbed father. Once again, Julia’s fate seems out of her control; she exists at the mercy of powerful men seeking to use her life for their selfish gain.

The new character in this book, Jameson, was one of my favorites. His unique means of instructing and encouraging Julia through all of her trials was both fun and insightful. I would love to read more of his experiences in Africa!

And Julia’s maturing faith was a beautiful theme of this book. Though a new Christian, she is one forced to grow quickly by circumstances that threaten to destroy her. When she can trust no one else, she learns to call on her true Father.

I enjoyed all three books of this series and am happy to recommend them. Tyndale House Publishers sent me a complimentary copy in exchange for this honest review.
