The Hiding Place
Corrie Ten Boom with John and Elizabeth Sherril
Summary: Corrie, Betsie and their father live in an old, unique house in Haarlem, Holland. They own and run a little watch shop in their home. As the Nazis increase the persecution of the Jews, the Ten Booms open their home to these oppressed people--even building a wall that creates a special hiding place for these Jews in case of a raid. The raid comes and the entire family goes to prison. Corrie and Betsie end up in a concentration camp in Germany. But even in the deepest darkness, God uses these two women to shine His light.
Personal Thoughts: It's hard to read this book without asking yourself how you would respond in these situations. These two women gave thanks in all circumstances. They brought the light of God and the hope of His Word wherever they went. It's a very moving account. There is an unparalleled depth found between these pages that is rare in books that possess this same setting.
