Guest Post from Alana Terry

Have you seen in the news that the leaders of North and South Korea have both publicly stated their willingness to promote peace on the Korean peninsula? It was certainly a historic moment, and this part of the world has earned its place in global headlines.
My interest in North Korea, however, goes back over a decade, when as a young mother I received a prayer burden for the people of North Korea. Fast-forward to five years ago when my debut novel was released. The Beloved Daughter follows the life of a young girl who is sent to prison camp because of her father’s Christian faith. In addition to winning several awards, The Beloved Daughter gave an expression to my prayer burden to see North Korea free to worship the one true God.
Out of North Korea is unique among my other titles because it’s the first story that focuses on an American in North Korea. Ian McAllister is captured and held in a Pyongyang prison because of a photograph he took of a young homeless boy. I hope the message leaves you as inspired and encouraged as I was when I was writing it.

My Review







The author made this story feel so real, I felt like I was picking up rocks from the river bed, and a story that could be on the news tonight.
This book has a lot going on, and the way Ian ends up there is totally believable, but so many surprises here, and before I knew it I was at the end of the book.
The power of prayer, yes, we experience this first hand, and then there are surprises. Wow! With my heart in my throat, I soon was wondering if he was going to survive, and you will need to read to the end to find out.

I received this book through Celebrate Lit, and was not required to give a positive review.
