Badkittyuno returns officially to Cannonball Read 11 with a review of Corrie ten Boom’s memoir of life in Nazi-occupied Holland and her time in a concentration camp, The Hiding Place: The Triumphant True Story of Corrie ten Boom. The book was originally published in 1984 and was recently released as an audiobook, and the 10-hour narration held her interest. "I found this to be a very moving story, although some parts seem a little…glossed over? Shined up, maybe, as Corrie talked about her faith and how it brought light to the darkness." Do you have a favorite kind of audiobook? (Cannonball Read 11)
