Torn Asunder (audio version) - Alana Terry

4 Stars!

ABOUT THE BOOK -
Hannah and Simon are ready to return home and carry the gospel to the people of North Korea. In this world of spies, secret police, and informants, they soon learn that staying together won't compromise their ministry. It could cost them both their lives.

Two undercover missionaries delivering a single message of hope. Two Christians willing to die for the sake of the Good News. One love ~ more powerful than terror, more beautiful than life, and more dangerous than either of them could possibly imagine.

A love so strong, nothing but the grave could overcome it.

Torn Asunder is part of the Whispers of Refuge series branched off from Alana Terry's award-winning debut, The Beloved Daughter. These suspense novels tell the stories of contemporary North Koreans and can be read together or separately from Alana's other books.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR -
When Alana isn't writing, it's likely that she's on the floor wrestling with her kids. Or playing outside with her kids. Or chauffeuring her kids. Or trying some random science experiment with her kids. But she's probably not cooking or cleaning.

Alana is a homeschooling mother of three who loves to write, hates to cook, and enjoys reading a good book almost as much as she enjoys writing one.

Alana won the Women of Faith writing contest for "The Beloved Daughter," her debut inspirational novel. She has also won awards from Readers' Favorite, IndieFab (Finalist), The Book Club Network, and Grace Awards.

MY THOUGHTS -
Let me start out by saying that Alana Terry is an amazing person and an amazing writer. I rated her two other books (The Beloved Daughter, and Slave Again) 5 stars. So does that mean this one was not as good - No! It just wasn't as good "for me". I did like it very much, just loved the others better.

Very good storyline, very original. I didn't quite get the character development as good as her other two books. I also wasn't really in love with the two main characters. Also this was much more of a love story than I was expecting. Still - a very good read, a little sad in places, gripping, and inspiring!

I did this one as a audio, and I really think that was the difference for me. Maybe if I had read it as usual I would have loved it more. I think the reader had already set the emotion for me by the inflection in her voice and the way she read including pauses etc. If I had read it myself I would have set my own emotion and felt it more. I thought I always liked audios but this is the second one I didn't care for in an audio. Some day I think I will go back and read the book and see if it makes a difference.

Thank you Alana for send my this audio of your book for my honest review!
