Do your children love to read? Do they love true stories? I was sent a wonderful book called “Alone Yet Never Alone” for review. It is the true story of an immigrant family living in the wilds of Pennsylvania during the French and Indian War. It is an excellent book. Full of vivid imagery this tale has a way of drawing you in almost immediately. The action packed adventure is written for children 8 and up. I found it highly entertaining. I learned a lot during my reading adventure as well. I was thinking. this would make a great movie. Then I remembered they are making a movie. You can see it September 27, 2013. Want to see a clip the trailer is below.
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.
