Ms. Terry is a writer very gifted with imagery and character emotion. I could clearly see what they saw - and it wasn’t always pretty. I felt what they felt - and it hurt to even know such atrocities are possible in this fallen world. Her writing is just so very real and believable, and it’s almost incomprehensible knowing that circumstances such as these are happening half a world away. The characters took on their own identities quickly and were given a life of their own in a way that only truly exceptional authors can make happen. Hannah’s and Simon’s plights were thorough and well-developed. Supporting characters were created to be just enough and not too much – the enigma that is Moses had me going for awhile, slowly trying to figure him out and tugging my heartstrings with anguish in some areas. I questioned him, his actions and motives, and even had to get up and go find my husband to drag him into a discussion about this character and his path. This is actually the first book I’ve read by Ms. Terry, and I wonder if she’s already told some of Moses’ story. If not, she could easily create another novel focused on him. I plan on getting her other novels now just to find out!
Well done, Ms.Read more ›
The book follows two North Korean refugees mentioned briefly in Slave Again, Hannah and Simon, who have been trained in the 'Secret Seminary' by an American missionary couple. They are sent back to North Korea to carry out specific missions for the underground church. Their love for each other is overshadowed by a greater passion to bring light into a darkened North Korea. They are separated when they leave the Seminary, and the book chronicles their stories as they wrestle with how to reconcile the feelings they have for each other with their missionary work.
Alana Terry has a gift for developing three dimensional characters who struggle with some of the most difficult conflicts of the human spirit and come out on the other side looking much like someone might in real life; there are no simple answers, no decisions that come easily. One of my favorite themes of the book was summed up in the quote, "Never judge someone who fails a test you have yet to pass." Torn Asunder was full of tests of the will, tests of faith, tests of priorities. The way the characters engaged these tests was fascinating and thought provoking. I felt myself drawn into each character, feeling what they felt and understanding why they made the choices they did, even if I would like to think I would have chosen differently.Read more ›
