"Every experience God gives us . . . is the perfect preparation for the future only He can see."--Corrie ten Boom Corrie ten Boom was a Dutch watchmaker who became a heroine of the Resistance, a survivor of Hitler's concentration camps, and one of the most remarkable evangelists of the twentieth century. In World War II she and her family risked their lives to help Jews and underground workers escape from the Nazis, and for their work they were tested in the infamous Nazi death camps. Only Corrie among her family survived to tell the story of how faith ultimately triumphs over evil. Here is the riveting account of how Corrie and her family were able to save many of God's chosen people. For 35 years millions have seen that there is no pit so deep that God's love is not deeper still. Now The Hiding Place, repackaged for a new generation of readers, continues to declare that God's love will overcome, heal, and restore. "A groundbreaking book that shines a clear light on one of the darkest moments of history."--Philip Yancey, author, The Jesus I Never Knew "Ten Boom's classic is even more relevant to the present hour than at the time of its writing. We . . . need to be inspired afresh by the courage manifested by her family."--Jack W. Hayford, president, International Foursquare Church; chancellor, The King's College and Seminary "The Hiding Place is a classic that begs revisiting. Corrie ten Boom lived the deeper life with God. Her gripping story of love in action will challenge and inspire you!"--Joyce Meyer, best-selling author and Bible teacher

»Eines Nachts verschwand Annie. Aus ihrem eigenen Bett. Das ganze Dorf hat sie gesucht, überall. Alle haben das Schlimmste befürchtet. Und dann, wie durch ein Wunder, kam sie vierundzwanzig Stunden später zurück. Aber sie konnte – oder wollte – nicht sagen, was ihr zugestoßen war. Es war ihr aber etwas zugestoßen. Ich kann mir nicht erklären, was es war. Ich weiß nur, dass sie, als sie wieder auftauchte, nicht mehr dieselbe war. Sie war nicht mehr meine Annie. Ich konnte damals nicht zugeben, nicht einmal mir selbst gegenüber, dass ich mitunter mörderische Angst vor meiner eigenen kleinen Schwester hatte.« Beklemmend, unheimlich und Atem beraubend spannend – der neue Thriller von C.J. Tudor.

At the same time a stranger appears at Janet's door claiming to know the truth and a high school friend returns, with his own confused memories of what happened.

With an introduction by D J Taylor My father would have flipped a coin and watched his fate come twirling down to earth. Dolores is the youngest of six daughters. Growing up in the 1960s in Cardiff's poverty stricken Tiger Bay, her life is cursed from the start when, on the day of her birth, her father gambles and loses everything on a bet that Delores will be a boy. As Dolores grows older, we see this strange underworld through her eyes: Tiger Bay is a place of gaming rooms and cafes, of crumbling houses and burning secrets, and for Dolores and her sisters, their home is a dangerous place, filled equally by fear and love. Thirty years later, the estranged sisters return to Tiger Bay for their mother's funeral. It is a time of consolation, of memories and nightmares, and a chance for Dolores to understand the tragedy that has shaped her existence. The Hiding Place is a deeply moving and intensely lyrical novel about love and betrayal. Shortlisted for the 2000 Booker Prize, it portrays the life of a child condemned forever to bear the mark of a disintegrating family.
