Publisher's Summary

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. Corrie ten Boom and her family became leaders in the Dutch underground, hiding Jewish people in their home in a specially built room and aiding their escape from the Nazis. For their pains, all but Corrie found death in a concentration camp.

Here is a story aglow with the glory of God and the courage of a quiet Christian whose life was transformed by it.

©1971 Corrie ten Boom and John and Elizabeth Sherrill (P)1993 Blackstone Audio, Inc.

What the Critics Say

"Wanda McCaddon does great credit to the writers of this true story. Her emotional control makes the tension and horror of the family’s plight more real and hideous. The listener is left with a story of extraordinary humanity, goodness and overwhelming love." (AudioFile)

    "review, the hiding place."

    I personally have lived in Germany from 1966-1968 as an American soldier and still find it hard to believe the atrocities committed by the Nazi's. I am married now for 49 years to a wonderful Christian lady who happens to be German. May God bless the innocent. I will also add that her family was divided by the second world war account of Soviet East Germany. We both pray for peace in this dangerous world

    "an inspiring story"

    very well told. The Ten Boom family is entirely endearing, which helps you understand how Corrie and Betsie develop their faith. I also enjoyed the reader.

    "Must read!"

    Encouraging reminder of God's faithfulness even in the darkest places. My faith was challenged as I heard of the great struggles people were called by God to face and how He made ordinary people surrendered to Him into great women and men of faith who spread hope and help in some of our world's darkest days.

    Story
    "HE is our hiding place."

    Listened to this while visiting Holland. We were also able to tour the Harlem home of Corrie while there. One of the most encouraging, moving testimonies of how the love of Jesus can conquer the most horrific hate. Truly amazing grace.
