Publisher's Summary

In a small North Korean village, a young girl struggles to survive. Catastrophic floods have ravaged her countryside. 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 dissident.
The Beloved Daughter follows Chung-Cha into one of the most notorious prison camps the contemporary free world has known. Will Chung-Cha survive the horrors of Camp 22? And if she does survive, will her faith remain intact?

Deeply Moving

If you could sum up The Beloved Daughter in three words, what would they be?

powerful, moving, heartbreaking

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Beloved Daughter?

There were a couple of startling revelations. I don't want to give any details and ruin the story for those who haven't read/listened to it yet!

Have you listened to any of Kathy Garver’s other performances before? How does this one compare?


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me cry in several places.

Any additional comments?

I was deeply moved by Beloved Daughter. The story is gritty and heartbreaking in places, but at the same time touching and inspiring. It burdened me to pray more for the people of North Korea, especially Christ's followers who have been imprisoned and are enduring unspeakable suffering for their faith. I really think all Christians ought to hear this story, especially those who don't know much about what's going on in other parts of the world. Now I can't wait for the sequel! Oh, and the problem with the chapters being out of order has apparently been fixed, as I didn't have any trouble with them.

Where does The Beloved Daughter rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Among the top ten. Right along side the Francine Rivers narratives I enjoyed last summer.

What does Kathy Garver bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I really appreciated the complexity of the scenes which contained dialogue. I could feel the personality of each voice as she brought him or her to life.

If you could take any character from The Beloved Daughter out to dinner, who would it be and why?


Any additional comments?

I've both read it and listened to it and LOVE the audio version! Not only can I enjoy it hands-free, but I was able to pick up on things I missed the first time through. It definitely adds a deeper dimension. I look forward to Alana Terry's next book!
