As a human trafficking prevention missionary, I can attest to the fact that Ms. Terry's portrayal of sex trafficking was spot on. Her setting may have been Asia, but it might easily have been the US or other Western countries as well. From Sun's recruitment to her initiation phase, it was like I was reading a news report instead of fiction. Yes, it often really does happen that way.
The antagonists infuriated me, but it was easy to understand their motivation. Especially those struggling to survive in the midst of hunger. Up until a few pages before Agent Ko's true identity was revealed, I waffled between which character I believed it to be. Only right before the reveal did I guess it, in fact.
The American missionary wife's personality greatly annoyed me, but I suspect there are deeper issues she struggles with that manifest themselves in her annoying personality traits. (I have a good guess what they are, but will have to see if I'm right in future books.)
As a missionary to a free country, I cannot imagine what it would be like carrying the Gospel to a closed country like North Korea that is hostile to Christians. I hope we get to hear more about the North Korean missionaries that were trained in future books.
"Slave Again" is written from a Christian perspective, by a Christian, but there isn't anything in it that would be offensive to a non-believer. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone and look forward to reading other books written by Ms. Terry.
While I did receive a copy of this book, for free, in exchange for my unbiased review, I discovered I'd already purchased the book last week anyway.
Alana Terry handles this story of intersecting and colliding cultures and motivations deftly, weaving complex plot lines and difficult subject matter. She doesn't shy from harsh realities of life in a repressive society, nor does she ignore humor, love, and other grace notes. There are no pat answers to the complex issues of desperate circumstances, and every effort to make positive changes comes at some cost. These aren't so much heroic people doing amazing things as more or less everyday people doing what they can.
The characters are layered and flawed. They sometimes get in their own and each other's ways, sometimes comically, and sometimes disastrously. They misread and use each other at times.
No one in this story is perfect, which keeps things real. And, overarching the story are questions about religion, human rights, and human nature.
Although I would have enjoyed a little more development between the climactic scene and the resolution, this book ended on a satisfying note, while leaving enough unsaid to fill in other parts of the story.
A compelling, thought-provoking tale, compassionately well-executed.
'Slave Again' is the book following 'The Beloved Daughter'. Both books are stand-alone stories, but anyone who loves series will want to read 'The Beloved Daughter' first.
'Slave Again' follows Pang and Mee-Kong, characters found in 'The Beloved Daughter', after they have escaped from Camp 22.
Mee-Kong escapes into China, but finds out life isn't any better.
Sun is about 13 years old. She decides to help her family financially by trusting a man who says he will get her a job and a better life. But he isn't to be trusted. Sun finds out too late - he has sold her.
Roger and Juliette Stern have a publishing company in China, On the side, they help women caught up in the sex trade and those in trouble - teaching them about the gospel and then sending them out to spread the gospel.
I have read 'The Beloved Daughter' and 'Slave Again.' They are so good - can't wait for the next book to come out! Thank you, Alana - I just love your books!!!
I did really enjoy the ending, and how basically the Lord took so much evil that had happened to, and even been done by, one character and turned it for good. I also love how so many of the characters from the other books make appearances here and some of their stories are filled out more completely.
It is a great series and I just hope they keep on coming. So what are waiting for? An invitation? Ok, here it is read them both and find out for yourself.
