I absolutely love the story of Corrie's life, and read The Hiding Place a few years ago. Was nice to read a biography. The 3 is because the actual writing of the book is average to poor, but it does give an ok overall look at her life, emphasizing her time in prison/concentration camps.
The story is incredible! I have to take off a star because of the writing. It is written for a very young audience, but even with that consideration it felt clumsy most of the way through. I am inspired to read A Hiding Place though, so for a biography the author did his job :-)
