I don't usually like non-fiction, or religious books. In fact, I had to read this as part of a class. But I found myself going through it faster than expected, and in my spare time... regardless of your beliefs, it paints a very powerful portrait of love, loss, and most of all, faith during the Halocaust. Bringing out the best and worst in man... a real tearjerker.

this was a recommendation from a friend after she discovered how much the holocaust intrigues me. I have read dozens of memoirs from survivors of the holocaust, but never one from a woman who helped Jews escape the horror of camps and ghettos. amazing read, and puts a new perspective on WWII. there were good people out there-and some survived to tell about it. this story will bring you through each emotion, have kleenex at your disposal: for the tears of sadness and laughter!

This book is one of those that you cannot put down til finished. Kept my interest! Talks about the men and women that were taken into concentration camps. It is not all gloom and doom. The strength and courage of Corrie Ten Boom and her sister is amazing!!! God is with them through it all. One of the phrases taken from the Bible " Be thankful for all things " . The trials they endure are amazing.

A very moving account of a Christian woman and her family's journey to help jews during the Holocaust. Rough at times, but very powerful!

This is both well written and an amazing story. It is not a good read aloud for young children, but I expect people would know that by the subject matter. I learned some new things about how the holocaust affected some people, but most of all, I learned about how people could praise God even for fleas in a concentration camp dormitory! You'll have to read the book to get the details on that! :-)

A wonderful testimony of God's faithfulness in the dark days of World War II. No Christian (or WWII buff, for that matter) will regret reading this.

The power of this woman is amazing. This book is in beautiful condition--i believe care was taken by so many as it is such a beautiful story to be told, it was meant to passed on. I loved this read alot. True, making it so much the harder to read but so much beauty from this woman who at anytime could of been discovered. I've read this book 3 times and eaach time i am more grateful for my family, friends and safer country in which i am lucky enough to live.
