The Beloved Daughter
by Alana Terry
Christian Fiction / Contemporary
Available April 2013
230 pages



About the Book
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

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.

The Beloved Daughter has won awards from Women of Faith and the Book Club Network. It was also a #1 amazon bestseller in Christian suspense and is the top-rated ebook in several different kindle categories. The Beloved Daughter is available in kindle or paperback. You can also get the audiobook narrated by four-time Audie award-winner Kathy Garver.

My Thoughts
To be honest, I wasn't sure what to expect from The Beloved Daughter, with it being set in North Korea and focusing on persecution. However, I was so (pleasantly) surprised by this book! Alana Terry delivers a moving story that shines a light on the challenges that Christ-followers face around the world. North Korea is one of the hardest places for Christians to live, and the book paints a realistic picture, while also sharing a beautiful story.

Due to the nature of the story, this isn't an easy read. BUT, while there were times I needed to set the book aside, I always wanted to go back to it. The Beloved Daughter is well worth your time and a 5-star read! [5 stars]

I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for my fair and honest review.

About the Author
When Alana isn't writing, it's likely that she's on the floor wrestling with her kids. Or playing outside with her kids. Or chauffeuring her kids. Or trying some random science experiment with her kids. But she's probably not cooking or cleaning.

Alana is a homeschooling mother of three who loves to write, hates to cook, and enjoys reading a good book almost as much as she enjoys writing one.

Alana won the Women of Faith writing contest for The Beloved Daughter, her debut inspirational novel. What, No Sushi? is Alana's first book in a chapter-book series for kids published by Do Life Right, Inc. 

Alana Terry is getting ready to release her next novel, Slave Again, about a North Korean refugee who escapes prison camp only to get trafficked across the border.
