I am super excited to once again host the very talented Alana Terry, author of The Beloved Daughter!
I really loved this book! The Beloved Daughter is the story of Chung-Cha, a young North Korean girl, imprisoned because of her father’s christian faith. Although gritty and emotionally hard to read at times, the story is told with a light hand and gentleness that highlights Alana’s gift of storytelling. Rather than becoming bogged down in the brutality that is prevalent in the prison environment, the book focuses on the humanity of the characters and the choices they make in order to survive circumstances beyond their control. Even if I did cry big fat tears at the ending, The Beloved Daughter is a satisfying story, that will not only stay with you long after you have read it; but will also entertain, educate and challenge you to look beyond your own life experiences!
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.
