Defect or Die

"Lay still-pretend you are dead," Young Soon told her trembling young son as she lay, bleeding, on the ground, and nestling her nursing baby closer.

After reading a smuggled newspaper article about life beyond North Korea, widowed and pregnant Young Soon is determined to flee her beloved country with her son and baby to find food and safety in neighboring China...across the river.

How could the daily messages blaring from the loud speakers be wrong? Loyal communists believe government announcements that North Korea is the only country prospering, as the rest of the world is depressed and starving. Was it all a lie?

Near the riverbank and above the guardhouse looms a great red dragon. Its tail sweeps back and forth across the rive and smaller evil-looking creatures scurry beneath it. Far above the red dragon, Heaven's warriors, dressed in white, charge courageously. The dragon seems distracted, but not defeated. What's to become of Young Soon and her children?

Miles away in China, Mei Lin has a heart-pounding dream about a baby crying out to her from murky waters. Who is this baby? How will she find him?

I'll Cross the River is a true-to-life novel that depicts the incredible human tragedy occurring today inside North Korea. The prayers of many bring two families together in a story you will never forget.

Very thought provoking...I didn't know what to expect when I got this book. It was labeled as a Christian book but the premise really got my attention. I have always been fascinated with North Korea...the whole "hermit state", no one ever sees inside intrigued me. This is really two stories that come together in the end. It is the story of a Christian missionary in China where it is not always safe to be a practicing Christian. It is also the story of a young woman in North Korea who lost most of her family to starvation and is willing to do almost anything to save her last remaining two children. I loved the little insights that it gave me into their culture and the problems that they face. I really enjoyed this book and would highly recommend it.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Is a promise of freedom worth the risk of crossing the river? 14. November 2014
Von Richard and Liz - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Be captivated by this story about two different families in two different countries: China and North Korea. Young Soon is in Poydan, North Korea. Her husband died of starvation a few months ago and now Young Soon who is pregnant, along with her two young children are wasting away living on watery rice gruel and grass roots. Each day Young Soon and her sister Ja go to the political meeting in hope that they will be given rations. They have to walk past a corn field guarded by the soldiers who are all well fed and afterwards head up the hill, hoping to maybe find some of the elusive ginseng. There are no leaves or bark left on the trees.

Meanwhile in Tanching Village, China, we are introduced to Mei Lin and her fiance, Liko. Mei Lin has been in prison and knows what it is like to be tortured but still she is looking forward to going on an evangelistic tour with Fei for ten weeks, visiting some remote villages. Originally supposed to be going with Pastor Wang but he is being followed so the two girls are on their own. It is a ten day trip over the mountains before they reach the first village.

Each story is told in alternating chapters so easy to follow. Young Soon, who is nearly on her death bed, is revived when her brother brings her food. Will she believe what he has to tell her about the rest of the world? All her life she has been dedicated to the North Korean "cause" and believed the story that the rest of the world is worse off than them. Will God somehow get a hold of her life?

In the meantime, Mei Lin sees tremendous response to the gospel message and learns to follow God's directions. She also receives some very realistic dreams about a baby boy. Who is he and what do the dreams mean?

This book reads as very realistic. In fact, I actually thought I was reading a true story until I got close to the end. (Had not read the summary.) I did think the ending was a little abrupt and would loved to have kept reading. Although fictional it brings to life the dangers that Christians in both these countries face. They definitely need our prayers.
5.0 von 5 Sternen A Land in Bondage 22. Oktober 2016
Von Virginia Jones - Veröffentlicht auf

North Korea, a communist country whose rulers are so cruel, they are letting the people slowly starve. The leaders refuse aid from other countries. They have brainwashed the people into believing the rest of the world has even less food than they do and that they will start receiving food soon. They are forced to worship their Dear Leader or be punished. They are afraid to even think bad thoughts about him. They have never heard of God and His love. A Land with no hope. Many try to escape, they are usually shot or spend the rest of their life in prison. Across the river in North China there are Christians who help those who do escape. There is a young lady, a missionary who risks her life to preach the gospel in China. She travels by foot to different villages, many people accept Christ. Many times she has to flee because the cadre come looking for her, if çaught she will be sent to prison.
This really is intriguing to read. I didn't realize it wasn't fiction until the end. I'm so grateful to live in America. I can praise God openly and without fear.

This book isn't a literary gem like Little Women or Billy Bud, in fact, the writing is very unremarkable. However, the story line was interesting and I did feel that it brought attention to plight of North Koreans and Chinese Christians, which is important. The plot and mission deserve 4 stars, maybe, but I skipped almost an entire chapter where someone "went to Heaven" because quite honestly, it sounded like the Dinosaur Train Time Tunnel. I couldn't understand why someone would write such a chapter until I read the about the author. Apparently, she had a near death experience and says that she based that on her experience. I cannot speak to the validity of her claim, but I was much more interested in the interviews she had conducted with North Koreans who had escaped through China.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Heartbreaking and Eye Opening 20. September 2016
Von Caprice - Veröffentlicht auf

This book will open up your eyes to the plight of people living and starving in North Korea. They are without hope because there is no way out of their situation except to escape the country at the risk of being killed on their way out. If they do manage to get into China, they are still at risk for being sent back to North Korea, where they and any family members will be imprisoned and tortured, then executed. Though the character of Young Soon is fictional, the reader cannot resist becoming drawn to her plight of trying to get enough food for her children.

Meanwhile, this book also shows how dangerous it still is to be a Christian in China. The missionary trip of the two Chinese girls shows that danger. They have to make up a reason for their journey, write letters to their families using code words, and avoid speaking in front of certain people, and hide their true mission from people associated with the government in order to avoid being arrested, imprisoned and tortured.

Even though the journey these two young ladies are on is perilous, when they preach and teach in isolated mountain villages, many people believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ and are brought into his family. Many miracles are worked through these two young women. The deaf hear, people with skin conditions are healed, and others with various diseases are healed. Some reviewers of this book are skeptical of these things happening, but I have seen healing through faith before. Anyone who is familiar with the evangelical churches will believe that these miracles did happen.

I read this book in one afternoon and evening. It was so interesting and eye opening to the horrific conditions the people of North Korea face on a daily basis. It also showed that China is still a totalitarian communist country that is only putting on a shining face to the rest of the world while behind the scenes it has not changed at all. This book is a must read for all Christians so that they can understand how good we have it in the United States and in other Western Countries, while our Christian brothers and sisters in communist countries show great bravery in the face of persecution and threat of death.
