My Review:

From the first page right up until the last page I couldn’t put this book down. I have been hooked since I read her first book “The Beloved Daughter” and each book she has so much to live up to and I am so glad to say that she does it each time.  I love this series of books and I can’t wait to read more books by her.  If you love reading suspense filled books than I know you will love this one.

Excerpt from Torn Asunder:

Simon gritted his teeth. His head felt like it was sinking. The general kept his voice level and pleasant as he slipped the device over Simon’s pinky. “Now, you just tell me who you delivered your Bibles to, and I’ll let you leave here with everything intact.”Simon tried to swallow. His whole jaw was swollen from his scuffle in the woods. He shut his eyes and hoped the general couldn’t feel him tremble.General Sin chuckled to himself. “Silly me. I forgot.” He slid the device off Simon’s finger. “This kind of tool won’t work on a big, strong man like you.” He strode over to Hannah and yanked her hand before Simon could even cry out. He jammed her ring finger into the opening.

Simon struggled against his iron restraints. “Let her go!”

Hannah sucked in her breath. General Sin still glared at Simon. “This is your last chance. Give me the names, and I’ll release her unharmed.”

Simon’s field of vision blurred over. He wanted to scream. The metal from his handcuffs sliced open his wrists. He pictured himself breaking free and tackling the general to the ground.

“Better talk.” General Sin yawned. “I hate getting my uniform messy.”

Hannah’s hand trembled, but she didn’t make a noise.

“Three …”

Simon clenched his jaw, unable to tear his face away from Hannah’s wide, terrified eyes.

“Two …”

Unsung Hero’s-My Favorite Author Right Now

Unsung Hero's

I get emails of daily writing prompts from The Daily Post and this was one of the prompts: We all have our semi-secret, less-known personal favorites — a great B-side, an early work by an artist that later became famous, an obscure (but delicious) family recipe. Share one of your unsung heroes with us — how did you discover it? Why has it stayed off everyone’s radar?  After I read this prompt I knew I had to write about it.

When I read this prompt I had two authors pop into my head so I am going to talk about one of them today..  The first author is one I have posted about several times because I love her books.  Alana Terry writes the most amazing books.  I have had the honor of receiving all of them to review and I am hooked on her writing.  Her third book comes out the 22nd of December and I know everyone will love it.  One thing I love about her is the fact that she actually listens to her reads and answers back when you have a question for her.

If you aren’t a huge  book worm like I am than an author answering back when you ask a question about one of their characters might not seem like a big thing but for me it was huge.  If you haven’t seen my reviews on her books you can click here and here to check them out.  The third book will be released on Monday so I will like the review here once the post goes live.

This is also the first author I have ever read that made me wonder what happened to some of the characters after the book ended.  I fell so in love with the main character in her book “The Beloved Daughter” that to this day I still wonder what happened to her.   I know that because these books take place in modern times that I could connect more with them than other books.

I often wonder how many other great authors are out there that no one knows about because had she not emailed me to review her book I never would have found her.  Finding authors like her is the main reason I got into reviewing books because I wanted to find new authors.  I have found tons of new authors but I have also found some authors that make me wonder how and why they write  books.  Anyway that isn’t the point of this post.  I am so glad she  contacted me because she is an amazing author and I love her writing.  You can click here to pre-order her new book “Torn Asunder” and make sure you check back for my review on Monday.

The Beloved Daughter by Alana Terry

The Beloved Daughter

The Beloved Daughter by Alana Terry was one of the best  books I have read in a long time.   When I was first contacted by the author I thought it sound like it would be a good book to read  but I never expect to be touched so deeply by the book.  I took me about a chapter to get into the story and after that I was hooked and literally read the whole book while I was at work one day because I had to know how it ended.  I felt so bad for all the characters and yet at the same time I was so proud of most of the characters.  I do have say that some of the characters did shock me and weren’t who I thought they were but I love when that happens because it so rarely happens anymore with the amount of books I read.  I can’t say more because I refuse to give the ending away but I recommend this book to everyone because it is amazing and so thought provoking at the same time.

The Beloved Daughter, an inspirational suspense novel by award-winning author Alana Terry, is a story of persecution and triumph set in the oppressive North Korean regime. The audiobook version of Alana’s bestselling debut novel is narrated by Kathy Garver, a four-time Audie award winner and Lifetime Achievement Award recipient from the Motion Picture Council. (You might also recognize Kathy as Cissy from the TV show Family Affair.)

Listen to a sample of Kathy reading from The Beloved Daughter.

The Beloved Daughter

Synopsis: In a small North Korean village, a young girl struggles to survive. It is her father’s faith, not the famine of North Hamyong Province, that most threatens Chung-Cha’s well-being. The Beloved Daughter follows Chung-Cha into one of the most notorious prison camps the contemporary free world has known. Her crime? Being the daughter of a Christian.
