We finally finished Anne Frank: Diary of a Young Girl. My heart bleeds. I would love to complain about how the book ended, as if the ending were merely bad writing, except that this book isn’t fiction. That’s how real life happens sometimes. It was heartbreaking.
We’ve moved on to The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom. It has the same setting, and in fact the same ending for some of the people in the book, but Corrie’s story will make this one much easier to read. At least that’s what I’m hoping for.
Best line from The Hiding Place so far: “I know that the experiences of our lives, when we let God use them, become the mysterious and perfect preparation for the work He will give us to do.”
