Publisher's Summary

Corrie ten Boom was a Dutch watchmaker who became a heroine of the Resistance, a survivor of Hitler's concentration camps, and one of the most remarkable evangelists of the 20h century.

In World War II she and her family risked their lives to help Jews and underground workers escape from the Nazi's, and for their work they were tested in the infamous Nazi death camps. Only Corrie among her whole family survived to tell the story of how faith ultimately triumphs over evil. Here is the riveting account of how Corrie and her family were able to save many of God's chosen people.

For 35 years millions have seen that there is no pit so deep that God's love in not deeper still. Now The Hiding Place, repackaged for a new generation of readers, continue to declare that God's love will overcome, heal and restore.

Amazing Courage

Story was lovingly read with the voice of (what sounded like) an elder woman who gave the impression that she understood the hardships faced by Corrie. I mention this because the book places Corrie in her 50's and so it feels as though you were actually hearing the words from Corrie herself.

I was completely taken by how Corrie and her sister Betsy were able to keep so much hate from entering their hearts for their captors and for that matter all the bad that was happening around them. It was amazing to hear of all the good they were able to accomplish through the underground and the many lives that were touched by such a loving family. The story talks much of the work they accomplished for years prior to the capture of her family and each persons involvement as well as her life prior to the invasion of Holland. So the story does not linger on how much bad had occured after they were captured and is not so sullan as to depress the listener. It gave me a new found respect for the affection of others and also how God was able to heal and protect during such a tumultuous time.

Riveting

Would you consider the audio edition of The Hiding Place to be better than the print version?

Yes, because the narrator makes me feel like I am actually hearing Corrie Ten Boom. I read the print version several years ago and the audio version has been even better!

Which character – as performed by Bernadette Dunne – was your favorite?

Corrie of course, because it is a first person narrative, but she is quite adept at bringing out the characters or each of the other people in the book--even the men.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This is an extremely sad and serious book overall, but it is not depressing. Throughout the book, the grace and sovereignty of God is evident.

Any additional comments?

God promises in Isaiah 41:10, "So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand" and The Hiding Place is evidence of His faithfulness to this promise.

Wasn't prepared to be this inspired

What a great book! Not only is her story inspirational but her writing is excellent. I very much enjoyed this narrator and felt as if it were Corrie reading it herself. This is a must read!

Great personal history. Very inspiring. Corrie Ten Boom is a real woman of God and her sister and father are true examples of how Christ uses us and protects us no matter what the situtiation.

Fantastic Book and Fantastic Reading of it!

I was turned onto this book by an excerpt of it from a Sunday school message. It is a great story and greatly challenges and convicts. Her and her sister Betsy's ability to forgive is flat out amazing and puts into perspective how petty some of the items people are unforgiving over. I HIGHLY recommend this book and the reading of it.

I confess...I cried. Powerfully moving story, and many of its lessons ended up in my Facebook statuses each day.

A "Must Listen" for All

If you could sum up The Hiding Place in three words, what would they be?

Inspiring. Humbling. Precious.

What did you like best about this story?

The best thing about this story is that even after listening to it thirty years after I first read it, it still is able to draw me in, sit me down in the story, and keep my head and my heart engaged.

What about Bernadette Dunne’s performance did you like?

Bernadette Dunne cared about what she did. She cared about the characters. She erased the line between story and listener.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Forgiveness. When Corrie is able to draw on her sister's courage and sense of mercy and forgive.

Any additional comments?

It would be good if this book were heard or read by young women seeking heroines.

A Must Read

Would you listen to The Hiding Place again? Why?

Yes, very moving book and I know that I miss pieces when listening because my attention may be drawn away. I believe that a person would benefit from more than one time through this book.

What other book might you compare The Hiding Place to and why?

The book of Revelation. The trials that those people endured had to seem to them like they were living in the end times.

What does Bernadette Dunne bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She brings a personality to each character in the book with the influx of emotion and diction in her voice.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

So many. But the ending when Betsy's visions are realized by her sister.

Love the story. Not the narrator.

Don't buy this version. Buy the other one. I own them both and much prefer the other narrator.

Excelent reading of a book I loved many years ago

I read, The Hiding Place, as a teenager and was really enthralled by Corrie's story. When I saw it on Audible I wondered if it would be read as I read it, It was. It really brought the horror of the Concentration camps and the absolute faith of the sisters to life.

As a grown up it has challenged me to step up my faith and to accept that God is in control, even when it seems I am so far away.

Fully recommend this.

One not to miss.

I'd recommend anything by Corrie Ten Boom. A family who could have happily carried on their lives together with their watchmaking business but who risked everything to save the lives of others. An example of true faith and family love which will make this a classic until Christ returns.

Inspirational

I listened to this with 5 of my kids aged 14 down to 4.
It was an incredible story to share together.
Beautifully written and beautifully read. We thoroughly enjoyed it.
There were wonderful moments when Corrie and Betsy's faith shone through bringing both laughter and tears. Definitely a book to spur one on to contentment whatever the circumstances.
Such interesting details from family life in Holland to preparing for a raid from the police to surviving a concentration camp.
Gripping and moving.

Fantastic.A really heart wrenching real life story

This is a story about a Family from Holland and their trials faced during the war. This is quite sad in some parts and to know these things really happened is very sobering. The family's strong unshakable faith in Jesus is inspiring. I would recommend this book.

Beautifully narrated, very moving story

What did you like most about The Hiding Place?

The narration. Bernadette Dunne's performance was perfect, with her lilting and gentle voice.

What did you like best about this story?

The testimony to God's strength and Corrie ten Boom and her family's faith. The whole story is beautifully described with some lovely turns of phrase.

What does Bernadette Dunne bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I really felt that Bernadette Dunne WAS Corrie ten Boom, I felt as if I was listening to her own story.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Many. The descriptions of the living conditions in Ravensbruck were very vivid. The descriptions of her family life were very moving.

Any additional comments?

This was an utter delight to listen to due to Bernadette Dunne's lilting narration. In spite of the story being ultimately harrowing, it is suffused with hope.
