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)

    Story
    "I thought I knew this story but I was so wrong"
    Where does The Hiding Place rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I've heard about the book all my life and thought I'd read it. I'd even posted a Goodreads rating about it. When Audible had it on sale, I decided to listen to it "again." What timing. Our world seems like a dangerous and troubling place right now and our news media and elected officials are not making it easier to understand or feel safer for many of us. But Corrie and her family lived this reality in stark contrast to what we experience now in the US. Read this book for the testimony, the history, but also for much-needed perspective about the lengths people are willing to go and the things they're willing to sacrifice to preserve life and liberty for others and fight evil at their doorstep. It's remarkable.

    Story
    "Moving, inspirational and humbling."

    I first read this book as a teenager and was deeply touched by the story of Miss ten Boom. Listening to it read all these years later brought a new dimension to the astonishing story of God's grace and power in the midst of unspeakable evil. I recommend a second read or listen to anyone who has read/heard it before and to anyone who has never heard of Corrie ten Boom...start reading!

    Story
    "A must read for everyone!"

    This is a very informative and well put-together account of what life was like during the time of the Nazi invasion of Holland in World War 2. I think that it would be especially beneficial to Millennials who don't know much about that time period. This is a very moving and inspirational story of one woman's life that included a stay in a concentration camp. It is important to remember that none of those people ever would have dreamed anything like that could happen and we need to be diligent of the world around us. You don't need to be a Christian to read it but it does give insight as to how her Christian faith kept her and her family going.

    "Excellent Read"

    This is an extraordinary tale of love, life, death, faith, hope, courage, and charity in the face of impossible odds and danger. Ms. Ten Boom's story should be required reading. The narrator was perfect. It's surprising that a story involving the horrors of Nazi could be so uplifting.

    "Not good"

    Struggled to get through first chapter and gave up. It was painful to try to make it through the first chapter and was just not interesting to me.
