Torn Asunder


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

By now most of you are familiar with Alana Terry’s series about North Korean refugees. Torn Asunder is the latest addition and of all the books this is probably the most weightiest as Alana deals with conundrums experienced throughout the story. Tough times call for tough decisions but this story will get readers to thinking. And if one is to take into account that some of the things that happened in this story is an everyday existence for many North Koreans it will grieve the soul.  Harsh realities are presented parallel to a story of love, forgiveness, stamina and heartbreak. Now I’m not one to hide from reality, good, bad, everything – but this is probably my least favorite of the three books. It was so darn sad! Which isn’t really a bad thing. The author is definitely getting a message out there to people who would otherwise be oblivious.

As a side note: Part of the charm of these stories is that one never knows what happens to the main characters. We get the general gist but as for their ultimate ends we never know the details. Part of me wishes they would come back and another part is satisfied enough to know that they’re still kicking and doing good. Now my only question is – is there more to come?!

DISCLAIMER: In accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising” we would like to note that we received an electronic copy of “Torn Asunder” from the author in exchange for our honest review.
