The Hiding Place | [Corrie ten Boom, John Sherrill, Elizabeth Sherrill]

The Hiding Place

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....

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.

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
    "Loved it!"
    If you could sum up The Hiding Place in three words, what would they be?

    Incredible truth written


    What did you like best about this story?

    The wisdom and truth about God's interaction and relationship to us in this life.


    Which character – as performed by Wanda McCaddon – was your favorite?

    Corrie


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I cried at the beauty of the revelations of God given to us to help us in this life, and I cried at the horror of man's inhumanity to mankind. It takes a person to put hands and feet to the enemy's plans just as the Body of Christ, God's people, are Lord's hands and feet.


    Any additional comments?

    A must read for all!

    "The Ultimate Inspiration"
    Where does The Hiding Place rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book ranks extremely high on my list.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Hiding Place?

    The fleas! When Corrie and Betsie entered their last barracks, in the camp where Betsie would pass away, they were assaulted by fleas. Betsie insisted on giving thanks for everything about the camp. Corrie reluctantly agreed to give thanks for the fleas. You must read the book to learn the blessings wrought by the fleas!


    Which character – as performed by Wanda McCaddon – was your favorite?

    Betsie was perfect. Corrie was my favorite because she was more real to me.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Gifts in the darkness.


    Any additional comments?

    Perfect holiday reading. If you need uplifting, or lessons in appreciating your given situation, believe it or not, this holocaust memoir is IT.

    Story
    "Absolutely Inspiring"
    What did you love best about The Hiding Place?

    There are so many books about the Holocaust, but this one holds its own and stands out among the rest. Corrie's storytelling-like writing style and her inspiring recount of her involvement with hiding Jews during WWII makes this one hard to stop listening to.


    Any additional comments?

    The narration is wonderful and contributes well to the story.

    "Religious"
    What did you like best about The Hiding Place? What did you like least?

    This was written by a Christian and had a very religious outlook. This is fine and people who enjoy religious books would probably enjoy that. However, I was looking more for a nonreligious historical account of the time and place she described.
