Alone Yet Not Alone Book Review and Giveaway


About the book:

About Alone Yet Not Alone (novelization):

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.

Our Thoughts: 

I am a big history buff, so I was excited to see that this book was based on a true story.  I am also fascinated by this particular time period (1700s), so that made it even more interesting.  We received the book and read it as a family (me and my 3 daughters).  We read it over a period of a few weeks and just recently completed it.  The verdict:  We all enjoyed reading this book.

It is a great history lesson, which will allow readers to learn much about the time period of the late 1700s in Pennsylvania... clothing, chores, the French and Indian War, immigration, customs of the Delaware tribe, etc.  

It is also a lesson in faith, family, values... remembering that no matter the circumstance, no matter how alone a Christian may feel, he/she is never truly alone.  God is always with us.  Barbara and Regina lived out their faith, hiding God's Word in their hearts, remembering that even through the darkest of times, they never were truly alone.
I enjoyed this book and encourage others to read it as well.  Share it with your older children.  They can learn much from this inspiring story.  Some scenes are frightening and intense, so I would suggest ages10 and up.
