From time to time, I come across a work of fiction that is so obviously written by someone who has experience with the subject matter as to make it come alive. The Beloved Daughter is one such book.

Most of what I know of the conditions in North Korea in general, and for believers specifically, is in small bits and pieces from various missionary organizations. I've never doubted what they described, though it's hard to grasp how inhumane humans can be to one another when you only read a paragraph here and there. Likewise with how irrational people can be simply because of the name of Jesus.

Alana Terry has written a masterpiece that puts life in perspective in North Korea. That takes me out of the safety of my US life and transports me into the prisons where my brothers and sisters in Christ survive, somehow - or not. It also puts "free" life for Christians in North Korea in perspective. The constant observation of surroundings and suspicious people, the need for places to hide even in the home, to distrust even those people closest to you.

Because of Alana Terry's book, The Beloved Daughter, I will no longer be so blase when I hear of prisoners in NK, or of torture of one of my brothers or sisters there. I've "seen" the conditions in those prisons. I don't know how they survive at all. Prayer will be more than a simple "Bless them" from this time on. Thank you, Alana, for painting this picture for me and for all who will read and let it affect them so profoundly.

This book really hits home for me. Because I'm half Korean, (My mother was born near Seoul) I had a certain level of intimacy with the characters, so that even the names sounded familiar to me. And this made me especially sensitive to the abuse and torture of the characters and their horrid situations.

Abuse of Christians in North Korea is a current situation, not something off in the distant past. It's reality today. The author does a phenomenal job of making their plight a reality for readers who are completely clueless to the struggle of the underground church.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - but have tissues handy.

I received my copy of "The Beloved Daughter" yesterday and.... read the entire thing yesterday. I really enjoyed the story line as well as how the different characters were connected. It is easy to forget this story is set in modern days and not centuries ago with all the horrific things that happened to the characters (if you haven't read this story - I promise it isn't all bad - there are great messages of love and perseverance). It certainly opens one's eyes to what goes on in our world. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to learn about it. I did not find the character's names confusing because most characters are only in the novel for a short time and each in a unique situation (all revolving around one main character). Although not a long book, it covers so much. Religious persecution is very much alive today and this book reminds us of how it happens behind closed doors. A must read (with a box of tissues). Even if you are not a person of faith, this book will still speak to you about love and compassion.

The Beloved Daughter was not an easy book to read. It opens with North Korean officials arresting a father, mother, and, their twelve-year-old daughter, Chung-Cha, for their Christian faith. When a soldier slams the daughter's head into an iron stove and the father is ordered to renounce his belief in God, I cringed and searched my heart, wondering how I would react in similar circumstances.

And it only gets worse from there. After she is tortured while held in solitary confinement, Chung-Cha is told her father denied Jesus and hanged himself. Released into Camp 22 where the prisoners are even forbidden to supplement their meager food rations by hunting insects or rats, Chung-Cha questions her belief in God and embarks on a journey of survival.

After several years of a wretched existence, life gets worse when Chung-Cha is returned to solitary confinement. Yet, what men see as bad, God turns to good. Chung-Cha is befriended by a Christian woman in an unlikely turn of events. After years of deprivation, betrayal by friends, torture by her enemies, can Chung-Cha's faith be restored? And what will she do if it is?

This was a heart-breaking story that made my tears flow, not just in sympathy for the terrible trials the characters endured, but also for faith that triumphs in the most hellish of conditions.

The Beloved Daughter is a powerful book that is both riveting and heart wrenching-- a story that will never again let me take for granted the blessings we have in America.

(I received a free copy of the book.)

This book sounded like it would be something that might pique my interest, so I thought I would at least read it and see what I thought. I will say that this book was nothing like what I had expected.

Ms. Terry paints such a vivid picture of her characters and the pain that they endured. I've never read a story with such descriptions that truly made me feel like I was standing there inside the room as each story was played out.

Is this a "guy's" book? I would say that if you have but one to read this entire year, this book should be it. This book embodies great intrigue and suspense, this is one that should not be missed.
