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 just 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.

I would listen to Torn Asunder again because of the story. The suspense, romance, deep questions, and faith touched me and kept me listening even though the characters experienced many harsh circumstances.
Torn Asunder reminded me of the realities of the persecution happening to Christians worldwide. I remember the verse in Hebrews that tells Christians to remember those who are persecuted for their faith as though we were experiencing those things with them. Therefore, I am challenged to pray for those who are persecuted.
My favorite scene was the execution scene at the end. I cannot tell what happens for fear of revealing the end, but it was fantastic. It brought the right amount of stress and fear for the characters while reminding me of the joy that is to come.
The most memorable character was Moses. He was quite possibly the hardest character to understand and I did not care about him like I did the other characters. However, his circumstances challenged me to consider what it would really be like to be in a position of having to persecute someone else of the same faith. It made me question the goodness of his character. Yet, he still accomplished many good things for other Christians. I would never want to be in his situation, however.
I liked this book. it was as good as an audiobook as it was as an ebook.
I received a free audiobook copy of Torn Asunder from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Yes. It tells a heart wrenching tale of love that endures tragic circumstances.
Moses is a mysterious character who must make difficult decisions. Readers are not told what this does to his soul, but we do get glimpses.
The most powerful scene is when Hannah is about to be executed.
Hannah to offer her encouragement and a good meal!
Spreading the word of God in North Korea is definitely not for the faint of heart. Torn Asunder shows us the hardships endured by missionaries and explores the question, although does not completely answer it, of how far should Christians go to spread God's word in such dangerous situations.
Alana Terry is a gifted writer who takes us into the enemy territory and helps us to understand a little of what those who work for the cause of Christ are enduring. This will open your eyes to the plight of Christians in North Korea.
