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