    "This Book will give you HOPE"

    These days on average, most people would never have the honor or great responsibility of saving another human beings life; not to mention multiple human beings lives.
    For me, a book like this give me hope in humanity. A hope much like a candle that gets dimmer and dimmer as the days drag on, but is re-lit to it's former glory upon hearing such a beautiful treasure of a story.

    During a time not so long ago, there were many people in need of multitudes of complicated assistance, and there were others courageous enough to open their doors and do their best to provide the much needed aid; risking their own lives to save the lives of those they didn't even know, without a second thought.
    It would have been much easier, and better for their health, if the ten Boom family just turned those in need away. The couldn't turn one soul away, and in helping these people they save the lives of many, many human beings.

    Corrie ten Boom's story is entrancing and fascinatingly addictive, once you start you can't stop. One family with so much love in their hearts, I could only hope to have the honor of helping one person in my life the way they helped so, so many during theirs.
    This is a book not to miss if you like suspense, hearing about the triumphs of good over extreme evil, and anything about WW2 heroics.

    IMO-- LISTEN TO THIS BOOK, IT'S AWESOME!

    Story
    "Puts your eyes on God"

    This book helped me to really put suffering in perspective and encouraged me to trust God even when I simply do not understand what is going on around me. This is a tru story and eases from the mondaine life of a 50 year old spincer who lives a rithmic life of ruteen that turns into a world of crushing nightmares. In the middle of this horific picture of human depravity Gods hand is still able to be sceen and His love felt. This book will be read every few years to help me refocus on the important things in life.

    This story really takes you into the dark places of the past. The narrator captures the essence of the characters and it is easy to imagine the authors words and get into the story. Would definitely recommend!

    "Incredible Story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, this was a great story, and being that it was a true story, it makes you feel for what they went through. Also Betsy made me want to work on myself as a human being. She was under such tribulation, yet she her heart went out to others, including her tormentors.


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

    The fact that she took her experience and helped trauma victims from the war afterward was inspirational.


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

    Oh, I love her voice. She also read a Joyce Meyer book, she has an incredibly soothing voice.


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

    No idea, movies tend to leave too much out.

    "Amazing Story!"
    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    This story will haunt you at the things that this family was willing to do to help the Jews of the Holocaust. The recounting of things her father taught her as a child have been moments of special interest to me. He was an amazingly wise man. You will be inspired at the way God protected her and the precious people they were trying to save.

    Story
    "Purchased for Dyslexia Student"
    Would you listen to The Hiding Place again? Why?

    I purchased this book for a report due in class. The reader does read a little slower, but that really helps with the comprehension of the book. Especially for those with dyslexia. It is a true story that teaches life lessons on making honorable, heroic choices. We will keep this on our Kindle for long road trips.


    What other book might you compare The Hiding Place to and why?

    Dietrich Bonhoeffer is also true story of a German who gave his life for his country to make heroic choices against Nazism in WWII.
