Review: The Beloved Daughter by:Alana Terry

 The Beloved Daughter
About the Book:
In a small North Korean village, a young girl struggles to survive. But it is her father's faith, not the famine of North Hamyong Province, that most threatens Chung-Cha's well-being. Is Chung-Cha's father right to be such a vocal believer? Or is he a fool to bring danger on the head of his only daughter? Chung-Cha is only a girl of twelve and is too young to answer such questions. Yet she is not too young to face a life of imprisonment and forced labor. Her crime? Being the daughter of a political traitor. The Beloved Daughter follows Chung-Cha into one of the most notorious prison camps of the contemporary free world. Will Chung-Cha survive the horrors of Camp 22? And if she does survive, will her faith remain intact? "The Beloved Daughter" is Alana Terry's debut Christian novel and was a winner in the Women of Faith writing contest.

About the Author:
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.

My Review:
 What would you do if you knew that you or your loved ones could be killed for spreading the gospel? Is that why in the Bible we are told to keep the word of God hidden in our hearts, because at some point it may very well come to that and we may be called to renounce our faith to the Almighty?

 Famine begins to strike the Hasambong village and then not too soon after inspectors are sent door to door looking for traitors. Families were being ripped apart and separated and then sent to prison camps where eventually death would come upon them. Follow along in the story of The Beloved Daughter as you will soon learn of a young girl Chung-Cha and the future her life holds.

 The author did an amazing job! The characters are very thorough and convincing with an extremely strong storyline. You will immediately be drawn in to this girls plight and will be silently cheering her on. Definitely a must read!
