I recently received a copy of the book Alone Yet Not Alone to review. The book Alone Yet Not Alone is a novelization of the new movie by the same name.
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.
(affiliate link) Alone Yet Not Alone is recommended for children ages 8 and up. I’m definitely in the “up” category, lol, and I really loved this book! I read it in one day. I just couldn’t stop reading it! I’m excited to share this book with my children. They are going to love the story line, and all the adventure. I love the values that permeate the book, faith and family. Alone Yet Not Alone would also make an awesome family read aloud. There are ten discussion questions in the book that are perfect for families.
The author, Tracy Leininger Craven, loves history and retelling real-life stories in her historical fiction books. In an Author’s Note in the back of the book, she shares that this is a true story that her grandmother shared with her after searching her families genealogy. She said she wrote the first draft of this book when she was nine years old. How cool is that? After reading that, and this adventurous story, your kids just might want to write about their own family history.
