When Ten Boom's close-knit, deeply Christian Dutch family, who lived over their watch shop, became involved in the Dutch resistance after the Nazi invasion, the consequences were dire. Bernadette Dunne gives Ten Boom a slightly worn voice, which works well for a story told in retrospect. Dunne also indicates other characters with ease and suppleness. She manages to convey the remarkable way the book maintains a sense of warmth, kindness, and hopefulness while depicting the horrors of Nazi-run prisons and work camps. Dunne also renders Ten Boom's sometimes-faltering but profound faith as it should be, with deep feeling but no taint of self-righteousness. With sensitivity and tact, Dunne gives this harrowing story the engaging narration it merits. W.M. 2010 Audies Finalist, SYNC 2014 © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2009]
