The Hiding Place – Corrie Ten Boom (Adapted by Elizabeth and John Sherrill to a Young Reader’s Edition)
The Hiding Place is such a hard story to read. I believe it is hard because the persecution of Jews is just a difficult topic. Another reason would be that I ask myself if I would have put myself in danger for another people group. I would hope so, but who really knows unless you are facing the unimaginable!
This Young Reader’s Edition (geared towards ages 9-12) is a wonderful adaptation of the life, love, beliefs and hardships faced by the Ten Boom family. This family read, believed and lived God’s word. Their story is somewhat condensed in this Young Reader’s edition, but not watered down. It doesn’t stray from the true story, or candy-coat the hard details. I love the pencil illustrations that are seen throughout the book.
Buy this book! Read it aloud with your children. Thank you Chosen Books for the copy I was given in exchange for an honest review.
