Adding Living Books . . . A New Find
I just finished reading the book The Hiding Place written by Corrie Ten Boom. I feel like it is difficult to find the right words to describe this book. It is absolutely a "living book".
The biography of a woman from the Netherlands, that lived through World War II, and the experiences she and her family had during that time. I learned so much from this book. Beyond the historical information, I was amazed at the strength the individuals had for love and compassion, not only for their friends, family, and countrymen, but for their enemies and persecutors. I also learned a lot about being a parent. This book will be added to our list of Must Reads for our historical studies of the time during World War II. I strongly recommend that all read this book. Enjoy!
