This is a book about Corrie Ten Boom, of course. She lives in Holand with, by the time it's taken over by the Nazis, her father and sister Betsie. The madman Adolf Hitler, ruler of Germany, begins to take away the rights of the Jews. He also gives many rules for the others as well. Life for the Ten Booms changes drastically. Corrie's brother has a rest home, most of the people who come are Jews, but then a time came where the Ten Booms home also stars taking people in. For a time, they are not discovered. A man comes and builds a secret room in for an emergency refuge, in case the house is raided. Then it does happen. Corrie, who is sick, Betsie, and their father are all taken captive. They are soon in prison, where there old father meets his death. They are moved to other places and finally, in a German concentration camp. The Nazis treat them as not even animals should EVER be treated. There, Betsie dies. But things are better for Corrie. She gets let out and finally, makes it back to home. Sometime, she starts sharing her experience and speaking to people. Corrie learns the lesion of forgiveness and speaks of it to others. I probably wouldn't have picked this book up and read it. It was for reading, school subject. Corrie Ten Boom was a great Christian woman. This was a good book and it taught you about the horribly wicked blindedness of some people, and the forgiveness people can get from God.
