Everyone has heard of Anne Frank, but how many have heard of Cory Ten Boom, and her family of devout Christians who risked all to protect God's chosen people, while showing the love of Christ to them and fellow prisoners? The story is inspiring, and illustrates the mercies of God, and His mysteries.

I absolutely loved this radio theatre presentation! So much better than a book with "he said, she said", etc. Sounds effects, emotions, believable actors. This is an amazing true story of one woman's experience during WWII.

Radio Show

It was difficult for me to listen to a book in this format - like a radio show with different actors playing the roles in the story. The story was touching. It was very religious in nature, which was tough to swallow at times for me considering my religious background is very limited. Nevertheless, the story was worth listening to.

This book is just plain strange, a Christian perspective of of World War II concentration camps, group prayer meetings, the Bible, cookies, and a sweater while imprisoned with fellow Jews. I much preferred reading Elie Wiesel's, "Night".

This 3 cd set is outstanding. Everytime I got back in the car, I felt inspired by the stories that come out of such a devestating time period in the history of the world.
