BLOG TOUR: Torn Asunder by Alana Terry

BLOG TOUR: Torn Asunder by Alana Terry

{About the Book}

After graduating from the Secret Seminary, Hannah and Simon are ready to return to their homeland. Their training has equipped them to carry the gospel to a country ravaged by darkness and despair. If necessary, they’re even prepared to face the North Korean labor camps, but the hardest part of their mission isn’t the hunger, cold, and incessant danger. The hardest part is cutting off contact with one another. In this world of spies, secret police, and informants, Hannah and Simon 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.

{ My review}

My Rating: 5 Glorious Stars!!

Torn Asunder is a phenomenal follow up to Slave Again. Torn Asunder was just as suspenseful, heart-wrenching, and emotional as The Beloved Daughter and Slave Again. Alana really knows how to capture human depravity through written words. The Whispers of Refuge series is one that stays with you even long after your have finished the book. It's these kinds of books that make you realize that slavery is still very real in this world, even in the United States. In fact, the city in which I live is one of the top cities that is currently dealing with an epidemic of human trafficking. It's these books and the fairly new A21 Campaign that has inspired me to get involved with this issue, even if it is just educating others that Human Sex Trafficking is very much real and that we can't (especially us Christians) sit idle by and do nothing. Do yourself a favor and start this series!!

Note::: Because this series does deal with the mature theme of Human Trafficking I would recommend this book for ages 16+.
