A Special Thanks to FlyBy Promotions for providing our family this wonderful book to read. I was happy to be able to receive this book because I thought it would be a prefect read for my oldest daughter. Upon receiving it, it kind of reminded me of the Little House on the prairie or other books I read when I was younger.
Alone Yet Not Alone Book Review
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.
About The Author:
Tracy Leininger Craven loves history and retelling real-life stories in her historical fiction books. She also loves spending her free time in the great outdoors with her husband David and their four children.
My daughter enjoyed this book and I think it was perfect for her age range of teens. She said it was easy to read and I found that she was reading it every night before bed and reading whenever she had a chance. I think she was most intrigued because it is an actual true story! I haven’t had a chance to read it yet but can’t wait to read it myself. I do like how there is colorful pictures in the center to kind of get an idea of what the characters and scenes may look like. Another big thing for me that I really like about this book is this day and age there is a lot of bad in this world and our children are growing up around it, it is not the way it used to be and I like that this book is not full of vulgar and sex and other stuff that they may encounter in books these days. definitely an appropriate book for older kids. I believe others would enjoy this book as much as my daughter did and they are also learning history so it’s a win win situation. =)
My daughter really wants to see the movie that is coming out next month based on this true story and book on September 27th.
