    At one time, Corrie ten Boom would have laughed at the idea that she had a story to tell. For the first 50 years of her life, nothing out of the ordinary ever happened to her. She was a spinster watchmaker living contentedly with her sister and their elderly father in the tiny house over their shop in Haarlem. Their uneventful days, as regulated as their own watches, revolved around their abiding love for one another. But with the Nazi invasion and occupation of Holland, everything changed....

    Story
    What did you love best about The Hiding Place?

    The story is so improbable it could only be true: an elderly spinster watchmaker becomes a leader in the Dutch underground of World War 2.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The richness of the characters and their deep faith in God drew me in.


    What does Wanda McCaddon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrator's lovely accent helped transport me to Dutch Harlem. The names of people and places roll off her tongue so easily; if I was reading the book myself I'd have to stop and think about each one.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I've had to ration myself to listen to this book on my commute, but it's definitely changed my perspective about the drive. I eagerly anticipate when I can get into to the car and immerse myself in The Hiding Place. I'm more excited to get back to the book than I am to get home.
