The Hiding Place~ Corrie Ten Boom

Ho.ly.Cow. This was one of the most amazing books I have ever read. Seriously! I ADORED this book! More than once I was nearly in tears. Corrie Ten Boom is an amazing woman.

The Hiding Place does for the Dutch what Between Shades of Gray does for the Lithuanians. But I think THP might win just because it is 100% TRUE! So amazing!!!

My only fear now is that no other book will be able to measure up!

Ha! Does only two books count as flying through? Sweet!

I so totally agree with you. I have read and re-read this book, and I love it every time. Seriously, who needs fiction when there are true stories like this? (I'm kind of joking but kind of not!)

The very unfortunate thing is that now whenever I see Between Shades of Grey I first think of 50 Shades of Grey *shudders*. But on to the actual topic -- I have been wanting to read this for ages and seeing this just reminded me of it! Thanks!

One of my all-time favorite book, and I couldn't imagine what I would do if I'd be the one faced with the same circumstances. Thank you for sharing your inspiring review of Corrie Ten Boom's book. This book is inspiring and brave at the same time. The site http://booksforevangelism.org cites that "The Hiding Place is a book about how faith, compassion and love triumphs in the face of unspeakable evil. This book is recommended for everyone – nonbelievers and believer, specifically for people who have negative perspectives in life and those who are struggling to forgive other people." Heaps of books which can be used as a tool to evangelize to our friends can be found there, maybe you and your readers could check it out. A blessed day to you.
