“A groundbreaking book that shines a clear light on one of the darkest moments of history.”
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
I first read The Hiding Place when I was eleven. Someone past me a copy and said they thought I’d like it and it was one of the first books I had ever read that dealt with truly adult themes. Apart from Anne Frank’s Diary, I hadn’t read any World War II novels or accounts and this really does throw you into the deep end.
At eleven this book moved me, profoundly and occasionally I feel the need for some positivity and a warm cuddle and I pull it off the bookshelf and read it again.
