The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom
To some people this book and movie is very familiar. I had never seen the movie but have heard many stories about the book and author and always had it on my reading list. Fortunately i just happened to have found a copy lying around so I had my chance.
If you haven't guessed the story is about a family that had hidden Jewish families is a secret room in their home during WWII. Yes, there are sad events, but many unexpected happy events.
It does have "religious" overtones, but it's not the basis of the book.
I'd say it's a good read.
As I'm a horrible book reviewer I am including a link to the Amazon.com review of the book
