As a homeschool mom, I am always looking for great historical fiction to go along with our history lessons.  I was excited when flybypromotions contacted me to review Alone Yet Not Alone.



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 thoughts on the book:

I read this book out loud with my daughter and we thoroughly enjoyed it.  It is a gripping tale of perseverance and faith in the midst of hardship and uncertainty.  It captivated our attention enough to want to keep reading it every night.

I am excited that on September 27th, a movie based on this book will be released in theaters. I am already scheduling in a field trip with my 8th grade girl to go see the movie. The movie has been given 5 doves from the Dove Foundation, and is rated for ages 12 and up.
