Out Of North Korea

Just finished this thriller and I have to give myself a few minutes to allow the story and it's message sink in.  


I was captivated by Ian and his struggle to survive.  Will he get Out of North Korea alive? 

The story was touching and inspirational.  Ian's strength and his faith started with his relationship with his Grandma Lucy.   She knew that Ian would survive.  She knew that Ian would conquer and survive imprisonment and illness with God by his side.  God, the Almighty, was with Ian the whole time.  Once Ian gave himself to GOD, he was free.  Free from pain.  Free from fear.  

Great book.  

I received this free from Celebrate Lit to review.

Guest Post from Alana Terry

Have you seen in the news that the leaders of North and South Korea have both publicly stated their willingness to promote peace on the Korean peninsula? It was certainly a historic moment, and this part of the world has earned its place in global headlines.
My interest in North Korea, however, goes back over a decade, when as a young mother I received a prayer burden for the people of North Korea. Fast-forward to five years ago when my debut novel was released. The Beloved Daughter follows the life of a young girl who is sent to prison camp because of her father’s Christian faith. In addition to winning several awards, The Beloved Daughter gave an expression to my prayer burden to see North Korea free to worship the one true God.
Out of North Korea is unique among my other titles because it’s the first story that focuses on an American in North Korea. Ian McAllister is captured and held in a Pyongyang prison because of a photograph he took of a young homeless boy. I hope the message leaves you as inspired and encouraged as I was when I was writing it.
