This book details the growing up and young adult years of Corrie Ten Boom, the years before the events of The Hiding Place occurred. The reader learns a great deal about how growing up "in her father's house" prepared Corrie for the events that none of them knew were coming. Yet her family had an interest in the Jewish people, even her grandfather met with other men to pray for them. And they had an interest in reaching out to others, especially young people, and teaching them to follow God and develop good character. The book goes from story to story, so it feels more like a book of short stories than a cohesive whole. Along the way there are gems of insights and quotations from Corrie or her father that readers will want to pause and reflect on. A nice little gem of an uplifting read.

This is a wonderful account of how a parent's faith can impact generations to come.
