Torn Asunder by Alana Terry - Review

Torn Asunder is the newest suspense novel from award-winning author Alana Terry. Torn Asunder is the story of Hannah and Simon, two North Korean refugees who sneak back into their country to serve as underground missionaries. In this world of spies, secret police, and informants, Simon and Hannah learn that staying together won't just compromise their ministry. It could cost them both their lives.

This book is available on Amazon Kindle 2.99 for just.

About the Author:
Alana is passionate about human-rights issues in North Korea and has devoted her writing to raise both awareness and funds to help North Korean refugees find freedom and safety. You can find out more about Liberty in North Korea and Alana’s rescue campaign at  She is a gifted writer and her books will keep you glued til the end.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. I was not asked to give a positive review.

My Thoughts:
The more I read of these book the more difficult it becomes. The story is so intriguing and there is just something that draws you in a way you can't just not read it. But the suffering of those brothers and sisters in Christ becomes all the more real and it certainly makes you ponder how we can be so privileged when so many out there have so much less. It definitely makes me appreciate what I have, and makes me want to spend more time in the Word and learning Scripture and really being thankful that I can read God's Word. That I do live in a free country. It certainly makes me want to take seriously the plight of those believers behind closed doors as well and pray for them and do what I can to help. 

This story is a love story - between both Simon and Hannah and also their love for their Savior. As you read the pages, you will be drawn to their impossible plight - a love which cannot be. You will feel emotion, sadness, and yet be inspired by their courage, their faithfulness to the Lord, to each other and their love. 

Simon and Hannah are both mentioned in Slave Again - Book one of this series. It isn't necessary to read number one first, but it does help to get the full picture. And I highly recommend that book also.  If you really want to get  a feel for what our Christian brothers and sisters in Christ around the globe may be going through, you will want to read these books.
