My online writer friend and fellow indie author, Alana Terry, is currently doing her final free promotion for her novel, The Beloved Daughter, so if you’ve not read it and fancy a well written and very moving story then now’s your chance to download a copy here and it will cost you absolutely nothing.
So what’s The Beloved Daughter all about?
Behind North Korea’s closed borders, a young girl is dying for freedom. Her crime? Being the daughter of a Christian.
The Beloved Daughter is inspirational suspense and an amazon bestseller. It’s won awards from Book Club Network (1st place) and Women of Faith writing contest (2nd place).
I read The Beloved Daughter earlier on in the summer and wrote the following review on amazon:
For 12 year-old Chung-Cha it’s her father’s Christian faith that rips her family apart when, in the middle of the night, her family are taken from their home and are subjected to humiliation and torture in a North Korean prison camp. And so begins an epic journey for Chung-Cha with the novel being surprising, uplifting and at times so very sad.
The Beloved Daughter has the feel of being set in a time long past and it’s shocking to realise that this is a story about modern day North Koreans. The author gives just enough details of the harsh and horrifying conditions that Chung-Cha and the other prisoners are subjected to in Camp 22 without being shocking for the sake of it. That’s a difficult thing to get right and Terry manages it superbly.
The Beloved Daughter is in turn heartbreaking and moving. It’s an important story about faith, love, hope, courage and survival. Terry writes in an engaging way and beautifully depicts the character of Chung-Cha and the journey she travels throughout the book. I highly recommend it.
