Guest Post from Alana Terry

Have you seen in the news that the leaders of North and South Korea have both publicly stated their willingness to promote peace on the Korean peninsula? It was certainly a historic moment, and this part of the world has earned its place in global headlines.
My interest in North Korea, however, goes back over a decade, when as a young mother I received a prayer burden for the people of North Korea. Fast-forward to five years ago when my debut novel was released. The Beloved Daughter follows the life of a young girl who is sent to prison camp because of her father’s Christian faith. In addition to winning several awards, The Beloved Daughter gave an expression to my prayer burden to see North Korea free to worship the one true God.
Out of North Korea is unique among my other titles because it’s the first story that focuses on an American in North Korea. Ian McAllister is captured and held in a Pyongyang prison because of a photograph he took of a young homeless boy. I hope the message leaves you as inspired and encouraged as I was when I was writing it.
My Review:

This was a book that left me thinking about it when had to quit reading for a little bit during the book. I enjoyed Ian sense of humor. It was one of those subjects that was hard to read about but kept my attention to see how it was going to turn out. Ian was in China but was ended up in jail in North Korea. He didn’t know why he was there.

Ian’s Grandma was a big part of his life, he is atheist but his grandma is praying for him to be saved. He got so sick from being malnourished and being in the cold so much. He ends up in the hospital there twice, the first time there was a stray dog that really gave him emotional support. The dog brought so much to the story, they can be such inspiration.

I received an complementary copy of the book from Celebrate Lit, I was not required to write an positive review.
