"Meet the man who shaped Corrie ten Boom's early years, the man who imparted faith and courage to her, Casper ten Boom.

"A skilled watchmaker, a highly respected businessman throughout Holland, and a man of great courage, his spiritual optimism caused him fearlessly to hide Jews in his home during the second world war. It was a risk which became a swacrifice—to end in a lonely death in a Nazi prison.

"Corrie ten Boom vividly recalls lessons of love and encouragement she learned from this man—her father." (Blurb from the back cover. This is a story that just won't die. Maybe Corrie could write one about her mother, too—as well as her brothers and sisters. There's money to be made here... Unimpressed Dad)
