My mother-in-law emailed me several months ago about a book she heard about that was being made into a movie and wondered if I had heard about it. I hadn't but she gave me the title and I looked it up.
I was intrigued. It sounded like a good movie and the book would be great of course!
But I forgot about it and didn't look for any further.
Then, a month or so ago I looked in my inbox and saw a review opportunity for a book...the same book my mother-in-law had emailed me about! Well, I HAD to review it if for nothing else just to tell my mother-in-law about it.
I am so glad I said yes to reviewing the book. Alone Yet Not Alone is a wonderful book and one worth getting for the whole family to read.
Here is a little about it:
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.
Starring: Kelly Greyson, Natalie Racoosin, Clay Walker, Jenn Gotzon, Joanie Stewart, Ozzie Torres, Tony Wade.
Now, this book isn't a tome of a book; it is smallish and not intimidating to kids that don't enjoy reading. It would be a great book for them to read as it is a quick read. There is history as well as strong thread of faith and Christianity throughout the entire book. The characters rely on God and the Scripture they have memorized to get them through their trials and hardships. After being abducted by Native Americans the young heroine in the story recalls the Scripture she and her family memorized and the lessons her father taught them from the Bible. The Scriptures were in the forefront of her mind through everything and she was able to live out her faith for all to see.
I can not wait for this movie to come out. I highly recommend this book for the entire family. I would hand it to any of my children and not worry one bit about what they are reading. I am sure the movie will be the same way.
