This little gem is a great summary for children of Corrie Ten Boom's original classic The Hiding Place. Using concise narrative, with a large font, the story of Corrie's life is told with a deft touch, alongside many large digital illustrations that enhance young readers' engagement with the story. At various points the salient historical background is given, to explain why she hid Jews from the Nazis, why she was sent to a concentration camp, & why afterwards she preached internationally on forgiveness. I read it to my 8 year old son & found the book quite suitable for reading in 2 or 3 sittings. I was thankful that gruesome details from the original have been sensitively generalised for a young audience. I was most impressed by the succinct theological reflections drawn from Corrie's life. We're shown the heart of someone devoted to God in the hardest of times. The steadfast love of the Lord is highlighted: 'There is no pit so deep that God is not deeper still'. We also witness the gracious providence of God with her seemingly accidental release from Ravensbruck concentration camp a week before she would have been executed. The climax is a brief account of God enabling her to forgive one of the soldiers who had guarded her at Ravensbruck concentration camp. I'd gladly read this again to my children, encouraging them to live their lives devoted to the same God whose sovereign love so greatly blessed the author.
