by Alana Terry
-From the back cover-
She traded in her prison uniform for
shackles of a different kind.
After escaping a North Korean prison camp, Mee-Kyong is hustled over the border and sold into the Chinese underworld. She vows to survive, but sheer determination and willpower won't save her this time.
Is she fated to remain a slave forever?
Another powerful story from Alana Terry!
An emotional and moving story that left me thankful, but also convicted to pray for and do what I can to raise awareness about the persecuted Church.
Slave Again isn't always easy to read. It's not light and fluffy. It's truth. People in North Korea and China live through horrendous things that we Americans can only imagine. And yet, God places people like Juliette and Roger in key places for such a time as this.
Readers are introduced to Mee-Kyong in The Beloved Daughter and in Slave Again we find out more of what happened to her later. She lives a life so far removed from my own that sometimes it's hard to imagine and I kept turning the next page and the next. The choices Mee-Kyong must make are beyond impossible and not only does she survive day after day but a tiny seed of compassion is kept alive. That tiny seed just might grow into something amazing.
This Book earned a 4.5 Bark rating.
I will say that this book is not for young kids, personally I'd give a general age range of 16+.
I loved the suspense angle of trying to figure out who was reporting the actions of the Graduates to the authorities, and I kept second guessing myself on who the guilty party might be.
Alana Terry has once again penned a story that transports readers to a land some might say has been forgotten by God, and yet it is so apparent that He is constantly moving in the lives of it's inhabitants.
Slave Again was heartbreaking to read in places but one that will definitely make it on my list of favorite books read in 2014.
Tell Tale Book Reviews gives Slave Again by Alana Terry a 4.5 Bark rating.
