    1. Can you imagine escaping North Korea only to make the choice to return? That is the love the Simon and Hannah have for their homeland. They want to share the light of Christ with North Koreans and make a difference how they can.This was a beautiful love story. Love for Christ and love between a man and woman. This third book of the North Korea series is highly recommended.


    2. RESEÑA EN ESPAÑOL COMPLETAI 'm speechless Alana Terry has the ability to leave me speechless. She can create real and vivid situations that when you read her books, they make you ask: Is this really fiction?All of her novels are full of love and passion for God but also shows the real side of human beings and their conflicts when we go through difficult times.Hannah at first I felt that she was weak and helpless. As if at any time she could give up her faith. But when the story was developing [...]


    3. In the book, Torn Asunder, we are faced with the hard facts of life in North Korea. To be a believer in Jesus Christ is a death sentence, or a sentence of condemnation to life in a labor camp or torture, or at the very least, living a secret life filled with the fear of discovery. In the book, Slave Again, the reader is introduced to an American businessman and his wife, Roger and Juliette Stern. They run a Secret Seminary where they train North Korean refugees who want to return to their countr [...]


    4. The more I read of these book the more difficult it becomes. The story is so intriguing and there is just something that draws you in a way you can't just not read it. But the suffering of those brothers and sisters in Christ becomes all the more real and it certainly makes you ponder how we can be so privileged when so many out there have so much less. It definitely makes me appreciate what I have, and makes me want to spend more time in the Word and learning Scripture and really being thankful [...]



    5. Torn Asunder, by Alana Terry, details the experiences of Hannah and Simon, two graduates from the Sterns’ missionary school mentioned in Slave Again. Over the course of their year or so long training, Simon fell in love with Hannah. The only problem is, it is too dangerous for them to marry if they continue with their plans to be missionaries in North Korea because of the government’s extreme persecution of Christians; their love for one another could be used against them to betray other Chr [...]


    6. About the BookAfter 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 [...]


    7. By now most of you are familiar with Alana Terry's series about North Korean refugees. Torn Asunder is the latest addition and of all the books this is probably the most weightiest as Alana deals with conundrums experienced throughout the story. Tough times call for tough decisions but this story will get readers to thinking. And if one is to take into account that some of the things that happened in this story is an everyday existence for many North Koreans it will grieve the soul.  Harsh real [...]


    8. This is the third book of Alana Terry's that I have read, each one more captivating than the last. I feel that the characters are very well defined and I love how Alana describes all the surroundings of Simon and Hannah's assignments. They were very real in detail, I love that. I don't know the correct words to use but from the beginning of the book to the end you were pulled along and into the story of Simon and Hannah. The hope that you feel, the romance that they experience and the suspense t [...]


    9. WOW!!! This book evokes so many emotions that I don't even know where to start. Though it's the sequel to Slave Again, it can be read independently, and to be honest, I think it's even better than the first book (which tends to be rare)!Torn Asunder follows Hannah and Simon, North Korean refugees who have trained as underground missionaries in China and have now returned to North Korea to spread the word of the Gospel. Just as many Christians are persecuted for their faith in real life, Hannah a [...]


    10. I had trouble setting Torn Asunder down. The story drew me in and would not let go. This book is not for the faint of heart and does contain some gritty scenes of torture and abuse against individuals who are trying to spread the news of Christ as a part of the underground church in North Korea.Torn Asunder contains a wonderful love story and that is what carried me through the book, even past the horrors endured by some characters. It was a love story between two flawed individuals. The story f [...]


    11. A book that makes you gratefulIf you are like me and are blessed to live in a free country, this book will help you to never take that privilege for granted. I cannot imagine facing the trials and torture Christians in communist countries face. This book caused me to dig deep and make sure I am serving the Lord for the right reasons! It also stirred up the desire to pray for my brothers and sisters around the world who are unable to openly express their love and faith in Christ. A great book!


    12. As a fan of Alana Terry, I can't help but love all of her books.I can't say anything else because I'm still in this bookish-mood I can't take Hannah & Simon out of my head.


    13. Alana Terry brings us an exciting, suspenseful story about a couple's journey to North Korea to share the gospel.It shows the persecution of saints as they share God's word.The book shows violence that may not be for younger readers.I am reminded of the verse in Philippians, I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.


    14. Love Every Book in SeriesI usually read the sample before purchasing a book, but after reading the first book in the series, I purchased the rest without the test run.


    15. "Never judge someone who fails a test you yourself has yet to pass." -Mr. SternHannah and Simon have completed their studies in the Secret Seminary and now it's time to perform their Christian duties. Both must cross the border to North Korea and share the gospel by passing Bible literature to fellow Christians. For Hannah it's coming home and something she has longed for but for Simon it's simply a mission of mercy that's now become twice as deadly. Simon can't bear to leave Hannah alone in suc [...]


    16. Torn Asunder by Alana Terry is an extraordinary addition to her awesome series of books which include The Beloved Daughter and Slave Again. Ms. Terry is an incredibly gifted storyteller and all of the books are intense and thought provoking while providing a suspenseful tale of mystery, devotion and perseverance. Although there is connective tissue between the stories, they can be read as stand alones.Torn Asunder takes us back to the Secret Seminary with Hannah and Simon, two newly trained miss [...]


    17. In "Torn Asunder" the author details the ministry of two young underground missionaries, graduates of the Secret Seminary sponsored by an American couple in China. Simon, Hannah and the other graduates each embark on dangerous solitary missions to deliver Christian audiotapes and New Testaments to Christian safe houses in North Korea. Trained and prepared to deliver the gospel in a hostile area, extreme dangers always surround them. They can trust no one. Hannah is very young, and Simon is conce [...]


    18. Torn Asunder is the third book I have read by Alana Terry. Her subject matter, the plight of Christians in North Korea, does not lend itself to gentle reads. Terry never minces words when it comes to the brutality of the North Korean regime — the horror of the prison system is brought to light. Neither does she stint on the power of God’s word and work within the Christian community in spite of the darkness that covers that country. If you are interested in the persecuted church, then Torn A [...]


    19. This book is a sequel to Slave Again, I would encourage you to read it first, however it is not necessary to understanding what takes place in this book. It will however give you a good understanding about people and things talked about in this book.Hannah and Simon have had their training and are now off to take the gospel to a closed North Korea, their homeland. Even though they have been trained together they must go at it alone. Are they truly prepared for what is in store for them? When tri [...]


    20. A story of failure, faith, and Love.Wow! Another emotionally moving and powerful story from Alana Terry. With each step of Hannah and Simon I felt the fear, hope, disappointment, love, pain, and joy, along with them. As I sit in my comfortable living room safe in the U.S. With nothing more than my own trite little concerns to worry about I am reminded what our brothers and sisters face every day. Torn Asunder is that wake up call to what is really going on outside of my insulated world. What is [...]


    21. Torn Asunder is awesome. A powerful story of faith, under intense suffering and persecution in North Korea. I wish I could give it ten stars.In the beginning, Hannah, a very young girl trained to do mission work in North Korea, comes across as weak, and as I read, I wondered if she would survive. However, as the story progresses, so does her faith, and spiritual strength.On many levels, I found this book challenging, and knowing that the story has an element of truth, made it all the more powerf [...]


    22. Let me start out by saying that Alana Terry is an amazing person and an amazing writer. I rated her two other books (The Beloved Daughter, and Slave Again) 5 stars. So does that mean this one was not as good - No! It just wasn't as good "for me". I did like it very much, just loved the others better.Very good storyline, very original. I didn't quite get the character development as good as her other two books. I also wasn't really in love with the two main characters. Also this was much more of [...]


    23. Deeply moving both on a visceral level and a spiritual one. Written as part of the N. Korean series this book can be read alone or with the series. Hannah and Simon return to the land of their birth after taking refugee with the Sterns and being converting to Christianity. They know that returning to N. Korea with contraband bibles and working as missionaries is punishable by death. But even while they try to hide their love for each other, they can't hide or deny that they are called to bring G [...]


    24. I am torn between rating this book between a 4 and a 5. The writing is truly amazing and the details are extremely well done. The story in the book truly did "tear me asunder" as I lived through all the adventures and horrors with Hannah and Simon; however, although I know that most or many readers want happy endings, I wasn't quite ready for the ending as it happened in this story. Without revealing any spoilers, I guess I can say that it was 'a shock' which I found somewhat unrealistic and unb [...]


    25. The story of Hannah and Simon will stay with me for a long, long time. Alana Terry tells a little of what the North Koreans go through who call Jesus Lord. Let’s just say that you will be a very grateful person after reading this story! We are the rich of the earth in terms of materials. Hannah and Simon are rich in their relationship with God and each other. Going through intense torture and experiencing martyrdom drove their relationship—their wrestle, deeper with God. Alana Terry does a b [...]


    26. "Wonderful storytelling"Where does Torn Asunder rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?Torn Asunder rates at the top of my list of audiobooks enjoyed thus far.What did you like best about this story?The narration was lovely. The story aspects kept me thoroughly engaged.Which character – as performed by Pamela Lorence – was your favorite?Hannah was spot on. Pamela Lorence made the characters come to life.Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?I enjoyed h [...]


    27. Oh my soul, this book.This book was harder for me to read than the other two, The Beloved Daughter and Slave Again because it was such a beautiful love story. There were times in the story that I was in tears. There were times I was rejoicing and cheering Hannah and Simon on. There were times that I was cringing from the brutality and heinous treatment they received in the gulags. Overall, if you're looking for a poignant story with a beautiful love story and themes of redemption and God's grace [...]


    28. What a phenomenal book by a phenomenal author!! Alana Terry has an amazing gift for writing. Her stories are poignant, full of human characters, and heart-gripping. Again as I read another of her books I am forced to question my walk with the Lord amidst such tough trials these characters go through. Tears flowed freely down my face as my heart ached for the desperate times Simon and Hannah endured. You must read this book--it is an incredible story that will leave an indelible mark on your spir [...]


    29. RIVETING !!!! Torn Asunder is worth reading over and over . Set in North Korea, this book takes you deep into a land where Christ followers are persecuted. Alana Terry does not sugar coat her books. You will feel the tearing and pulling of your heart as young Korean missionaries Hannah and Simon give their all to God to share the gospel in a world where not only their love for Christ is tested to the extreme but their love for each other also is tried. Again, this book paints a realistic picture [...]
