A biography of the life of the Dutch woman who survived imprisonment in Nazi concentration camps during World War II to become a Christian missionary.
Corrie Ten Boom: Keeper of the Angels’ Den by Janet & Geoff Benge, written by Brianna Eschen, age 14:
The Ten Booms were a strong Christian, Dutch family that lived in Haarlem, the Netherlands. They lived in an old house called the Beje and ran a popular, little, clock shop. Cornelia (Corrie) was the youngest of four children, Willem, Betsie, Nollie, and Corrie. She was borne on April 15, 1892. A lot of her spare time was spent helping her father with the clock shop, a job in which she took great delight. She also loved organizing girls clubs where the girls could study the Bible and do activities together. When she turned 48, the Nazis invaded the Netherlands and her whole world was changed. This book tells the story of her life, and of the many miracles that occurred in it. I found this book very fun to read! I have read her autobiography “The Hiding Place” several times and this book is basically a shortened, easier to read version of that. I would highly recommend it to anyone.
