Summary, etc.: "When Corrie ten Boom realizes the rising Nazi empire will swallow Holland and create the holocaust of every innocent Jew in secret death-camps, she faces the deadly threat of these "Death-Skull Storm Troopers" with a surprising remedy: an army of untrained teenagers. Around that same time, brilliant young physics student, Hans Poley, chooses not to join the Nazi party. To protect him, his parents force him into hiding in the home of Corrie ten Boom. While in hiding, he witnesses the atrocities toward the suffering Jews and decides he must do something. Hans is drawn by resistance fighter, Piet Hartog, and love of Piet's life - Aty van Woerden (Corrie ten Boom's niece) into an intricate web of espionage and clandestine activities centered in the famous Hiding Place. As part of Corrie ten Boom's army of untrained teenagers, Hans, Piet, and their friends navigate a deadly labyrinth of challenges to rescue the Jewish people in their modern-day, panicked exodus from death while embarking on a nonstop, action-packed hunt with the underground involving Gestapo hijacks, daring rescues, codes in windswept old windmills, and stunning miracles in one of history's most famous dramas."--
