My Rating:

Summary: In a small North Korean village, a young girl struggles to survive. But it is her father’s faith, not the famine of North Hamyong Province, that most threatens Chung-Cha’s well-being. Is Chung-Cha’s father right to be such a vocal believer? Or is he a fool to bring danger on the head of his only daughter? Chung-Cha is only a girl of twelve and is too young to answer such questions. Yet she is not too young to face a life of imprisonment and forced labor. Her crime? Being the daughter of a political traitor. “The Beloved Daughter” follows Chung-Cha into one of the most notorious prison camps of the contemporary free world. Will Chung-Cha survive the horrors of Camp 22? And if she does survive, will her faith remain intact? “The Beloved Daughter” is Alana Terry’s debut Christian novel and was a winner in the Women of Faith writing contest.
My Review: 
I received this book for a fair and honest review.
This book touches so many emotions all at once. This is not an easy read given the subject matter. Chung-Cha is just 12 yrs old when she is taken prisoner just because of the religion of her father.
I can’t imagine a world where you are told what religion to believe in. I personally am not religious at all. However, I do not want someone to tell me what to believe.
Although this book takes place in Korea it reminds me a lot of what the Jewish people went through during the Holocaust.
