I am VERY familiar with this story - and you gave it such life! A great fit for the topic. Enjoyed this very much.
Corrie and her sister Betsy have witnessed to me in a special way for many years now. For that if no other reason I would love your story. But to top it off you have done a beautiful job of retelling in your own words and from your own heart. I can tell you felt this one as you wrote.

Not being familiar with this story, I thought perhaps it was a rewrite; however, from one of the above Commenters, I find that these are your own words...thus, I find it extraordinarily beautifully written...and very touching. Thanks for sharing.

I love research and a story;s whose writer did their research. Smart, anointed, great pace and kept my interest. SUper job. God bless.

This was very good. Reminders about Christians living in gratitude despite their circumstances is a must for the times we live in. Thank you so much for sharing!

Good job with the shift in viewpoint to the sister. My son and I are reading "The Hiding Place" now in school. The re-telling of this story is very good!

Very good re-telling of a familiar story. A good fit with the topic and truly inspiring writing. Blessings to you~
I really enjoyed this as one day I look forward to meeting both of these dear saints who suffered through so much for their faith. Corrie is my hero and I strive to see all the Lord has for me in this life because of her story of how she learned to walk in faith.

I never read Corrie's story, but you captured an essence here that makes me want to go find it and read it. Excellent job, especially with the journal format. ^_^
