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)

    "a gift"

    This amazing story is a gift, a blessing, a miracle. Corrie ten Boom and her family are sent to a Nazi concentration camp for their part in aiding Jews. Corrie's faith is sorely tested, but, her sister Betsy surprises Corrie and us with her unwavering faith, love, joy, and peace that passes all understanding. "How can you be thankful even for fleas! Betsy!" Corrie asks, when they are covered with bites as they try to sleep, Betsy's response ...in all things give thanks. And you will see the reason and share the blessing.

    "Captivating read (listen)!"

    I am having my students read this book for a class, and for lack of time, I chose to "read" it myself using Audible. Of the two option available, I chose this version, mostly because of the narrators voice. It seemed to fit perfectly with the story, and I was thoroughly engrossed from beginning to end. Such a great book, and an easy option for someone without much time to actually sit and read a book! I would definitely read this book again!

    "An absolute must read"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a must read. The beginning read likes a well written fiction novel. Then the concentration camps start. What an incredible story of the power of positivity and love. I didn't realize that so many of the stories I have heard over the years about concentration camps have been from this book. It's absolutely phenomenal.

    "wonderful inspiration"

    I am ashamed of my whining and tears of my pitiful cares of my life. I pray to receive a portion of the love of Jesus Christ and His love for me.

    "Such a great book and story"

    Corrie is such a hero of the faith and I love this book! The movie really doesn't do justice to the story as the book does!

    Story
    "Compelling. Genuine. True."

    This is a compelling look into how the hand of God moved mysteriously in the life of one Dutch family. in the darkest of times the light of Jesus did not go out and brought comfort, power, and Redemption to many. I can't remember being brought to tears so often in the reading of a book. There were so many precious lessons summed up in succinct phrases, I have to get a paper copy and re-read the treasure.
