Alone Yet Not Alone tells the story of Barbara and her sister Regina; how they were kidnapped yet did not lose faith.  Barbara draws her courage and her strength from her Christian Faith and does not lose sight of her goal to find her sister and be reunited with her mother and surviving brother.

Barbara and Regina are separated from each other and the book shares Barbara’s perspective. We join Barbara as she looks for escape from her captors, faces death and finds freedom.

From the Publisher: About the book:

Settled in the Blue Mountains of Pennsylvania, deep within America's new frontier, the Leininger family celebrates the blessings of a beautiful homestead and bountiful harvest. That is, until tragedy strikes with the beginning of the French and Indian War and the devastating raid known as the Penn's Creek Massacre.

The lives of this simple, God-fearing family are forever altered when Barbara and Regina, two young sisters, are carried away by the Delaware tribe. Driven by their faith in God and the powerful bonds of family, Barbara and Regina hold firmly to the belief that they are never alone, even in their darkest hour, and that they will be reunited again.

Rich in historical details, Alone Yet Not Alone is an inspirational, true story of a family caught in the cross fire of the French and Indian War.

Not only is this inspirational story a book, but it’s also a movie!  Awarded 5 Doves by the Dove Foundation, Alone Yet Not Alone opens in theaters September 27th!  The movie is based on the book.

Alone Yet Not Alone, written by Tracy Leininger Craven, is published by ZonderKidz and is appropriate for children ages 8+.  It would make a great family read aloud and I enjoyed just reading it for fun myself! I enjoyed the storyline very much though I wish there were more details about what happened after the escape before they were found by the English and brought into the fort. The book also includes a page of discussion questions and a note from the author.  Thanks to FlyBy Promotions, I am pleased to be able to offer one fortunate reader their own copy of Alone Yet Not Alone!

  4. I would devour it for myself and then likely add it into our school read-a-louds when we get to this time period later this year.

    Looks like an AMAZING BOOK.
