The Hiding Place, by Corrie Ten Boom
I read and reviewed this book in September, 2002; then gave it to another Bookcrosser. She read and reviewed it, then sent it to a third Bookcrosser who did the same! This is what Bookcrossing is all about, reading and sharing books, and perhaps learning if others enjoyed it as well!
Corrie ten Boom and her family lived in Haarlem, the Netherlands, during the first half of the 20th century. Part of the Dutch Resistance during World War II and the Nazi occupation, they hid and rescued many Jews, and subsequently were arrested. Most of Corrie's family died in Nazi prisons and concentration camps, but Corrie survived to tell her story of God's grace through terrible times. She spent the rest of her life traveling and telling her story, and spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ, until her death in 1983, at the age of 91.
My husband and I were able to visit the Ten Boom clock shop, home and museum while visiting in Haarlem, the Netherlands in 2001. It was an unforgettable experience!
