Review:

This much loved book has now been added to the Contemporary Hodder Classics series, and it is a well deserved addition because this book is still a best seller nearly 45 years after it was first written.

For those that haven't read it (and re-read it!) this is the true story of how after helping hundreds of Jews to escape from the Nazis, the family were betrayed, and Corrie, her sister and father were arrested. Soon after, her father died. When Corrie and her sister Betsie were moved to Ravensbruck concentration camp they saw this as an opportunity to tell their fellow inmates about God, and show by the way they behaved the way of Christ. Page after page is filled with a mixture of horror and hope. Betsie dies in the camp and Corrie is miraculously freed to return to her home in Haarlem and then to realise the visions described in great detail by Betsie before she died. 

Certainly a book well worth reading if you haven't already read it.
