This book helped me realize how blessed I am and gave me insight to the incredible faith Corrie and her family showed others. I highly recommend it.

It's difficult to make a comment on someone else's memories. Having known about the attrocities in the 'great war' from a very young age and seeing and hearing of the many horrific accounts ; I was expecting to have to suffer through gut wrenching descriptions of many things other than what were actually in her book. Her ability to hold onto her faith through all of what she experienced and to only mention facts regarding some of those painful experiences , shows what exceptional tenacity in this woman's character. Although the story suggests that this is a biography of Corrie and her own faith ; she often mentioned her sister Betsy and how her strength and exceptional way of seeing things .brought Corrie strength.

The narrator , Nadia May is perfect for this reading.

Corrie Ten Boom , from an early age developed a strong faith in God. It was this faith that held fast and grew through the first fifty years of her seemingly uneventful life. Surrounded by her family , their lives changed drastically with the Nazi invasion and the occupation of Holland. After being arrested for their efforts to aid the Jewish people her entire family was imprisoned. The cd cover states that only Corrie survived the concentration camp ; this is not correct. Her brother, one sister and one of her nephews made it home.She went on to do good works such as writing devotional books and traveled the world speaking about triumphant living.. She was 91 when she died.
