Teaser Tuesday – The Hiding Place

teasertuesdays31  Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers! ;)

It never occurred to any of us children that we ourselves were poor; “the poor” were people you took baskets to.  Mama was always cooking up nourishing broths and porridges for forgotten old men and pale young mothers – on days, that is, when she herself was strong enough to stand at the stove.

from the Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom, chapter 2

Just finished this a few hours ago and am still thinking about it.  Many of you may know that this is Corrie’s story of her family’s plight when the Nazi’s occupied Holland.  She and her family ran the underground operation of finding places to hide Jews, including their own home.
