Thanks for visiting my blog. Please read my review of The Beloved Daughter by
Alana Terry and then scroll down for chances to win different prizes as part of Alana’s Launch Party for the audiobook version of The Beloved Daughter!
I need to start by saying that The Beloved Daughter is not the typical story that I normally read. However, when I was contacted by Alana Terry to participate in her blog tour, I happily signed up. I have heard many great things about her book and decided that I wanted to read it for myself. I am glad that I did. It is so well written! This is a very serious book on the very serious topic of the persecution of Christians in North Korea. Through the book we follow the life of a girl who is imprisoned because of her father’s strong Christian faith. The author writes in such a way that the story flows easily. I recommend this book to readers who want to explore the dark world of religious persecution. (4 stars)
I received a copy of The Beloved Daughter from the author in exchange for an honest review, which I have given.
The Beloved Daughter, an inspirational suspense novel by award-winning author Alana Terry, is a story of persecution and triumph set in the oppressive North Korean regime. The audiobook version of Alana’s bestselling debut novel is narrated by Kathy Garver, a four-time Audie award winner and Lifetime Achievement Award recipient from the Motion Picture Council. (You might also recognize Kathy as Cissy from the TV show Family Affair.)
The Beloved Daughter
Synopsis: In a small North Korean village, a young girl struggles to survive. It is her father’s faith, not the famine of North Hamyong Province, that most threatens Chung-Cha’s well-being. The Beloved Daughter follows Chung-Cha into one of the most notorious prison camps the contemporary free world has known. Her crime? Being the daughter of a Christian.
