Story was lovingly read with the voice of (what sounded like) an elder woman who gave the impression that she understood the hardships faced by Corrie. I mention this because the book places Corrie in her 50's and so it feels as though you were actually hearing the words from Corrie herself.
I was completely taken by how Corrie and her sister Betsy were able to keep so much hate from entering their hearts for their captors and for that matter all the bad that was happening around them. It was amazing to hear of all the good they were able to accomplish through the underground and the many lives that were touched by such a loving family. The story talks much of the work they accomplished for years prior to the capture of her family and each persons involvement as well as her life prior to the invasion of Holland. So the story does not linger on how much bad had occured after they were captured and is not so sullan as to depress the listener. It gave me a new found respect for the affection of others and also how God was able to heal and protect during such a tumultuous time.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Hiding Place to be better than the print version?
Yes, because the narrator makes me feel like I am actually hearing Corrie Ten Boom. I read the print version several years ago and the audio version has been even better!
Which character – as performed by Bernadette Dunne – was your favorite?
Corrie of course, because it is a first person narrative, but she is quite adept at bringing out the characters or each of the other people in the book--even the men.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
This is an extremely sad and serious book overall, but it is not depressing. Throughout the book, the grace and sovereignty of God is evident.
Any additional comments?
God promises in Isaiah 41:10, "So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand" and The Hiding Place is evidence of His faithfulness to this promise.

I read, The Hiding Place, as a teenager and was really enthralled by Corrie's story. When I saw it on Audible I wondered if it would be read as I read it, It was. It really brought the horror of the Concentration camps and the absolute faith of the sisters to life.
As a grown up it has challenged me to step up my faith and to accept that God is in control, even when it seems I am so far away.
Fully recommend this.
