At one time, Corrie ten Boom would have laughed at the idea that she had a story to tell. For the first 50 years of her life, nothing out of the ordinary ever happened to her. She was a spinster watchmaker living contentedly with her sister and their elderly father in the tiny house over their shop in Haarlem. Their uneventful days, as regulated as their own watches, revolved around their abiding love for one another.

But with the Nazi invasion and occupation of Holland, everything changed. Corrie ten Boom and her family became leaders in the Dutch underground, hiding Jewish people in their home in a specially built room and aiding their escape from the Nazis. For their pains, all but Corrie found death in a concentration camp.

Here is a story aglow with the glory of God and the courage of a quiet Christian whose life was transformed by it.

4.0 2014 Audiobook SYNC: The Hidden Room
Corrie Ten Boom’s personal account of her activities as part of the Dutch Underground followed by her days as a political prisoner at the Ravensbruck concentration camps was both difficult to listen to and oddly compelling. I listened to The Hidden Room as Audiobook Sync paired it with Code Name Ver...

5.0 This is an inspiring story about righteous Gentiles.
This book is definitely directed to Christians, but there is no reason why others should not read it. It is very informative and it is written in a clear-cut, simple way; in a straight forward manner, it describes the horrors of World War II, and it documents the terror that Corrie Ten Boom actually...
