Chung-Cha's story is one that will quite literally tear at your heart. When she is 12 she is sent to Camp 22, a forced labor camp within North Korea. Her crime? Being the daughter of an outspoken Christian father.
Facing lies, torture, and a life of forced labor is the faith that she has strong enough to survive? And is God even there? After all where was God during the famine that has hurt her country? And where was God when her family was taken during the night? And how can her parents have different responses when her very life is threatened by the government agents?
The Beloved Daughter is a heart wrenching journey of faith and love. What would you sacrifice for your daughter? Would you deny your Savior or would you sacrifice your daughter? This is a question that haunts Chung-Cha and it is the premise of The Beloved Daughter. I highly recommend this book.
I was provided a copy of this title by the author Alana Terry in exchange for my honest review.
