This was a hard story to listen to because of the topic. Stephen Park is an excellent narrator, and the high quality of the writing makes this horrific story impossible to "put down". I enjoy books that educate and this one does a good job of giving us an inside perspective on life in North Korea through a personal story of tragedy and triumph. I highly recommend this audiobook.
The portrayal of life in China at that time is a unique blend of personal memoir and historical journey, with perspectives on some of the often hidden aspects of living the ministry life in that part of the world - as well as here in the U.S. This book inspired me to read her complete trilogy and other writings on historical aspects of life in China, written in elegantly descriptive prose. She is a master story-teller in her later works.
