The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom is an amazing little book. Set in one of the darkest times and places in recent history, it shines with hope, wisdom and love. I thought it might be a hard to read because parts of this story, parts of Corrie’s life, were unimaginably hard. Instead, I found that it was filled with reminder after reminder of God’s presence in the midst of the unimaginable. Reading it was not a dark and despairing experience, but a hope-filled one. Even the saddest parts were filled with hope because of God’s work in the lives of his servants.
... a book that illustrates how bad choices can change our lives in big ways and how forgiveness can do the same. I loved the story, the characters, and the ultimate messages that family is important, love makes a difference and forgiveness heals. A well told story that pulls at your emotions and keeps you turning the pages, this is a book you want to add to your kids’ TBR list and your own as well.
