I was hooked and ended up reading it in one go as I was eager to see how it ended. I found it interesting what Corrie ten Boom and her family experienced during the war and their unwavering faith during this time. God definately used their sorrows for good and it is written with such detail it's almost like being there with them and experiencing the concentration camps, beje and war first hand!
It was an insightful read into the events leading up to and during the war. I am keen to read the other books written by Corrie ten Boom as she is an excellent writer who does not leave any detail out of her remarkable story. A true inspiration which is relevant even today in your walk wit God.

Other than myself, there are so many people I know who would benefit from the book.. Those who suffer from 'everyday' frustration & depressive moments, due to our lust for more money and more success. Those who keep resentments toward their family, friends, colleagues, anyone who did them some or great form of wrongdoing. It is so encouraging that Corrie was just one of us many Christians, who had faith but didn't know if we had the courage to be faithful to our faith. Corrie just asked God for the grace every moment and she received it.
Also....as a Christian, I personally still had the question about why God let people suffer. This book answers part of the question, by witnessing all the things Corrie had gone through, and by showing how Corrie came out from all as the victor, because Jesus is the victor.
The bible has all I need for daily enrichment as it encourages, challenges and equips me to be more like Jesus. So when I choose to read a book, it's because its inspiring hearing people's everyday stories of triumph. Corrie Ten Boom and her family had a horrific experience but did not let this define them or deter them from continuing to show God's love in action.
Since deciding to become a Christian in 2007, I have read some books that have really challenged my faith and awakened new things in me. This book unearthed parts of my heart and is helping me be more like Him! #recommendingwholesomereads
They lived a quite life selling and repairing watches and were well loved in the town where they lived. However when Jews in need of help began calling at their home they did not hesitate and were imprisoned and eventually sent to a concentration camp. However in the sisters inimitable style they managed to smuggle in a small bible and preached to the other women prisoners in their hut.
I would recommend this book because it shows real courage, real love and understanding.
