Read in February, 2009

Its not often that a book changes your life. This one will stay with me always. This is the story of an amazing woman and her family who helped hide Jews during the German occupation of Holland. Corrie and her family were eventually arrested and imprisoned. While she was in the camps, she recalls all the small and large miracles of the way God made Himself present. Corrie's father and sister, Betsie, died in the camps, but she was released and went on to devote her life to making real the vision of her sister, Betsie- helping war victims and nazi soldiers heal and recover through faith.

At the end of the book, she revisits the concentration camp, Ravensbruck, now in East Germany, to honor her sister, Betsie, and the ninety-six thousand other women who died there. There, Corrie learned that her own release had been the result of a clerical "error"; one week later all women her age were taken to the gas chamber.
