The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom (Young Reader's Edition)
I heard about Corrie ten Boom growing up as a child. I heard the stories of Nazi's prison camps, torture, mocking, and humiliation.
However, I had never read the story of her life until now.
Her life was one of family, fun, and God. In her book, ten Boom recounts stories of her family life as the daughter of a watchmaker, a Dutch citizen, and a sister.
I was drawn in by the love she had for her family and God. I was also drawn in by her resolve to not let World War II and the ensuing imprisonment deter her from her faith.
While this is a Young Reader's Edition, it is still a powerful read of what one women went through at the hands of an evil empire.
