In May 1942, as the occupation grows harsher, Peter is arrested for playing the national anthem in church. Meanwhile, Corrie learns the methods of the Underground movement. The ten Booms begin housing Jews until they can find them safe homes in the country. Corrie solves the greatest problem for relocation, the lack of ration cards, by approaching Fred Koornstra , a Food Office worker. Corrie continues to develop a network of sources, learning tips from Pickwick and other Underground workers. In order to make the Beje safe during Gestapo raids, the anonymous Mr. Smit builds a secret room in Corrie’s bedroom.

Soon after, the prisoners are transported to a concentration camp called Vught, where they spend two weeks in quarantine. Eventually, they reach the main camp, where Betsie and Corrie share the gospel with their fellow prisoners. Corrie works in Phillips Factory and exhibits her mechanical skills, while Betsie sews uniforms. The sisters have slightly better conditions at Vught, although the constant executions at the neighboring men's camp make life difficult.

The book gets its title from two sources: the secret room in the ten Boom house and the verse in Psalm 119:114, “Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word.”

Cast anchor on his love, and be happy, rely on his omnipotence, and be safe. …In life, in death, in eternity, may he be your light, your strength, and your exceeding great reward! I know that your health is so bad, you cannot read much, but you can pray; you can send up your desires as incense, to the throne of God, almost every moment. As you sit, as you walk, as you take an airing, you may cultivate an intimacy with heaven; you may carry on a correspondence with God, you may hold silent intercourse with the Spirit of grace. Every sigh, if directed to him, is a prayer; every tear shed for sin, is a sort of oblation, acceptable to him in Christ, and shall be noted in his book.
