Alone Yet Not Alone

I recently watched the movie that just came out on this book. It was so good I went and read the book again. It was always a favorite book of mine. :)

Book Title: Alone Yet Not Alone
Author: Tracy Leininger Craven

Description:
A miraculous survival. An extraordinary faith.

Autumn 1755. 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. Until tragedy strikes with the beginning of the French-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 a band of Allegheny warriors. 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.

My Review:
Alone Yet Not Alone is a story based on the real life accounts of Barbara and Regina Leininger. It's an easy, fast-paced read with an exciting story that will have you hooked on every word. I was amazed by Barbara's courage and faith in a situation I can't even fathom. After finishing the book you will be even more awe-inspired by God's greatness and care for his children. Alone Yet Not Alone has it all; adventure, history, a light romance, and an ever-present Christian message.

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

  1. I like the painted cover the best. I own the movie version, and it's pretty good. Especially since there are familiar faces in in. :)

    There's also a book (not Christian) written from Regina's perspective that's very good. It's called 'I Am Regina'.

    1. It was a hard decision for me between the one on the left and right...they're both so beautiful I didn't know what to choose. But I think I'm leaning towards the one on the left. :)

    1. We have the same favorite :D. I think what I love most about that one is the picture of the two girls...I always love reading a book with a vivid picture of the character to go by.
