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 book itself gets 3 stars, but the story gets 5. Corrie ten Boom lived such an unbelievably inspiring life. The writing in this particular book didn't quite do the story justice.

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 :-)
I've read "The Hiding Place" a few times, but not this version of Corrie Ten Boom's life. It was very similar, and yet written for a bit younger audience. I'll be on the look out for more books about this amazing woman.

I found this book breathtaking and full of heart ships. I was overwhelmed when i read this book and can't really figure out if I hated it or loved it. Whatever this book is, it has a soul.
An inspiring biography on how simple faith can carry anyone through diffucult circumstances. I enjoyed reading about this lady.
Laura C. Robb
A great story of a Holocaust survivor and one who continued to serve God her whole life!
While the story was interesting, it seemed like it could have been fleshed out more.
Everyone should read a biography about Corrie Ten Boom. It's an amazing story.
