Can even God save him now?

An atheist journalist. A North Korean prison camp. An enlightening novel you won't soon forget.

"My favorite Christian fiction book of all time ... and I’ve read many." ~ L.D.


A single photograph could cost his life ...

Ian McAllister has searched the world over, hunting for that all-elusive perfect photograph.

He finds it on a tourist trip to North Korea when he stumbles upon a young street kid foraging for roots.

Unaware that this single act will cost his freedom, Ian takes the shot.

Now he must pay the penalty.


A true-to-life novel about an American imprisoned behind North Korea's closed borders.

A gripping tale of courage, faith, and hope from award-winning Christian novelist Alana Terry.

Read it today.

My thoughts: This is book is excellent! Well written and a realistic portrayal of what it could be like to be accused of being a spy in a foreign country. I thought that Alana did a wonderful job of writing about hard topics and breathing life into the story. This book is thought provoking and very interesting. It was hard to put down! I highly recommend it.
I received this book from Celebrate Lit. This is my honest review and is no way influenced by receiving a complimentary copy.

Alana’s passion for social justice, human rights, and religious freedom shines through her writing, and her books are known for raising tough questions without preaching. She and her family live in rural Alaska where the northern lights in the winter and midnight sun in the summer make hauling water, surviving the annual mosquito apocalypse, and cleaning goat stalls in negative forty degrees worth every second.

Guest Post from the Author:
Have you seen in the news that the leaders of North and South Korea have both publicly stated their willingness to promote peace on the Korean peninsula? It was certainly a historic moment, and this part of the world has earned its place in global headlines.

My interest in North Korea, however, goes back over a decade, when as a young mother I received a prayer burden for the people of North Korea. Fast-forward to five years ago when my debut novel was released. The Beloved Daughter follows the life of a young girl who is sent to prison camp because of her father’s Christian faith. In addition to winning several awards, The Beloved Daughter gave an expression to my prayer burden to see North Korea free to worship the one true God.

Out of North Korea is unique among my other titles because it’s the first story that focuses on an American in North Korea. Ian McAllister is captured and held in a Pyongyang prison because of a photograph he took of a young homeless boy. I hope the message leaves you as inspired and encouraged as I was when I was writing it.
