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.

This is a book that I am glad I kept reading.
When I started the book I wasn’t sure if I wanted to get to know this Ian person. He was a bit to snarky for me and nothing overly interesting was happening.
My advice — don’t stop reading.
This book is truly beautiful. I came to care deeply for Ian and some of the other characters in this book.
This is a store of redemption and restoration. It’s a Genesis 5020 story! What the enemy wanted to use to harm Ian God will use for good.
This is not your typical read, it is something much deeper.
