The Hiding Place
"As the Nazi madness swept across Europe, a quiet watchmaker's family in Holland risked everything for the sake of others, and for the love of Christ. Despite the danger and threat of discovery, the Ten Boom family courageously offered shelter to persecuted Jews during the Nazi occupation of Holland. Then a trap brought about the family's arrest. Could God's love shine through, even in Ravensbruck?"
I found this book deeply impacting as it helped me to see my own circumstances in a new light. In the darkest of places, Corrie and her sister Betsie find themselves thanking God for fleas, and that they can trust Him even there. Corrie's honesty helps the reader to relate to her, and imagine what life might be like if we lived with such total dependance on Jesus as is demonstrated in these pages.
