Overview

One of the bestselling books of all time— now a captivating graphic novel!

It's World War II.


Darkness has fallen over the world as the Nazis spread fear and hatred.

No one feels safe.

But on a city corner in Holland one woman fights against injustice and darkness. In a quiet watchmaking shop, Corrie ten Boom and her close-knit family risk their lives to hide hundreds of Jews and others hunted by the Nazis in a secret hiding place they built into the old building.

Until one day when Corrie and her family are betrayed. They're captured and sent in cattle cars to the notorious Nazi concentration camps to die. Yet even in that darkest of places, Corrie still fights.

This is her incredible true story, now a visually stunning graphic novel. With more than 1,500 engaging full-color illustrations, this real-life heroine comes to life—showing how even in the most desperate, loneliest, and darkest of times, faith, hope, and love will ultimately triumph.

"There is no pit so deep that God's love is not deeper still."—Corrie ten Boom

"This graphic adaptation . . . beautifully captures the essence of sacrifice, bravery, and love for others."—
Kirkus Reviews

"In addition to being unreservedly recommended for personal reading lists, it will prove to be a singular popular addition to family, elementary school, middle school, and community library Graphic Novel collections."—Midwest Book Review
