Book Description:

In a small North Korean village, a young girl struggles to survive. Catastrophic floods have ravaged her countryside. But it is her father’s faith, not the famine of North Hamyong Province, that most threatens Chung-Cha’s well-being.

Is Chung-Cha’s father right to be such a vocal believer? Or is he a fool to bring danger on the head of his only daughter?

Chung-Cha is only a girl of twelve and is too young to answer such questions. Yet she is not too young to face a life of imprisonment and forced labor. Her crime? Being the daughter of a political dissident.

“The Beloved Daughter” follows Chung-Cha into one of the most notorious prison camps of the contemporary free world. Will Chung-Cha survive the horrors of Camp 22?

And if she does survive, will her faith remain intact?

“The Beloved Daughter” won second place in the 2012 Women of Faith Writing Contest.

Alana Terry pens "The Beloved Daughter" in a heart wrenching plot filled with the horror of what goes on in the North Korean labor camps. A incredibly beautiful, but not an easy book to read due to emotions running wild, I was totally captivated in the story line. Not recommended for YA but I highly recommended to all mature readers!

I give "The Beloved Daughter" a 5 star rating.
