One of the loveliest things about this journey into authorhood has definitely been all the wonderful friendships I’ve made with fellow authors. I “met” Alana Terry on Twitter. We struck up a friendship because of our mutual interests: writing and homeschooling. (Yes there are a few others out there crazy enough to try to do both at the same time!)
Today I’m hosting Alana as part of the blog tour for The Beloved Daughter audiobook launch! Alana Terry is an award-winning author. Earlier this year, I downloaded The Beloved Daughter for my Kindle, and it quickly became one of my favorite reads of 2013: a poignant story, beautifully told, with descriptions that have you jumping right into the story.
The Beloved Daughter, an inspirational suspense novel, 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.)
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.
