A superb follow-up to her well loved book "The Hiding place", Corrie leads us through her travels after realease from Ravensbruck concentration camp where she tells the world about the love of God and how He sustained her through world war 2. Here she does not meet as many physical strains but her relationship with God matures and her continuous honesty inspires and challenges the reader.

Here Corrie tells us about the wonderfully varied experiences she had travelling the world announcing the good news that Jesus Christ proclaimed and so many witnessed. The book is down to earth, touching, humorous and inspirationally honest. Corrie has her struggles with holiness and forgiveness just like the rest of us, though her honesty and daily prayers help her overcome her obstacles. She is a modern day saint. This is a joy to read and should be read by people religious and atheist alike. This book is a master class in life's lessons.

This book illustrate's Corrie Ten Boom's life after her release from the concentration camps at the end of the war. It deals with how she dealt with her release and the change in the world as she knew it, and how she set about sharing the story with others around the world. You get the feeling when you read this book that very little is "dressed up" to make it appear more dramatic than it actually is, and while some of the writing style is too "conversational" it does make the book easy to read and the story compelling to follow.

excellent book. This book is inspiring for Christians and non Christians. Corrie was a wonderful person. Her family hid Jews and saved many from the Nazies

A fascinating and touching account of Corrie Ten Boom's itinerant life after feeling called to travel and "preach the good news" at the end of the Second World War. I enjoyed "The Hiding Place" and wanted to know what had happened next.
I have to say that I found it not as well-written as "The Hiding Place", and this drew my attention to the fact that "The Hiding Place" is by Corrie Ten Boom WITH John and Elizabeth Sherrill. I think Ms Ten Boom may be an extraordinary person but perhaps her talents are not as a writer - the book is in short and sometimes rather disjointed sections, like a series of anecdotes, and the author voice sometimes comes across somewhat abrupt. Nevertheless, Corrie Ten Boom's story is fascinating and inspiring, and I would recommend the book to anyone interested.

Again, a life to inspire every struggling Christian. Have only just finished it and intend to read it again. I don't want to miss out on any blessings in this book. Loved it. I would love to have met Miss ten Boom on earth and look forward to meeting her in Glory.

Whilst there are a lot of details about Corrie Ten Boom's life here, what I realised a few chapters in is that this book is more about the lessons that God taught Corrie in her itinerant ministry during the years after the war. It's not a biography, as it's only roughly chronological. Each chapter's message needs reflection before moving on. And some chapters are hard-hitting even if they're easy to read! As such I found it best approached as a one-chapter-a-day devotional than a testimony. It's well worth reading and stands on its own merits separate to The Hiding Place. I would have liked some more biography and perhaps a chapter or two on prayer, but overall it's a deserved classic.
