My Perspective


This book had me right in the very first chapter. I’ve read a few books by Alana Terry now, but this one was totally different. It had a different feel, almost different writing style, and different message. It is by far my favorite book of hers to date. Ian’s story will captivate you. His character will take you places that you hope you never see, but can’t help but be fascinated with as you are reading. His faith will certainly have you contemplating your own, and wondering if you would react exactly as he reacted.

Alana Terry writes this story so vividly that you can picture yourself there with Ian. As he sits there and contemplates his “writing assignment” in the beginning, I wonder what I would have wrote. His wit and sense of humor really grabbed my attention. That may seem weird, but in the setting that he was in, to be able to still joke around, think of creative conversations with his “editor” in his mind, and just try to make the best of the situation was kind of inspiring. Most people would sulk. Most people would cry constantly, begging to be let go. Ian was a whole different story.

This story is one that will speak to your heart. It almost feels like you are reading from Ian’s journal as you are reading it, or like he is replaying the story to you as a friend. You may even find yourself wanting to pray for Ian, even though he’s a fictional character. Yes, he will climb right into your heart and stay there, even after you’ve come to the end of the novel.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

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.
