Alone Yet Not Alone Review & Giveaway



I read to my family every night before bed, we love to read mysteries and historical fiction. I am always on the lookout for good quality historical fiction that we can learn from, but also enjoy. I just finished reading Alone Yet Not Alone to my family and it was a big hit. 

Alone Yet Not Alone is about a the Leininger family living in the Blue Mountains of Pennsylvania in 1755. They had so much to be thankful for until their family was torn apart in the Penn's Creek Massacre. While the mom and one brother are gone for a day Indians visit the cabin. The two sisters, Barbara & Regina were carried away and the father & the other brother were killed by the Allegheny warriors. Barbara constantly tells Regina to not loose her faith and that no matter where they are they are never alone. Their faith is further tested when they are separated from one another. The story is from Babara's perspective and when she is about to be forced into marrying an Indian, she decided to escape with 3 other white captives. Once they find the Redcoats years later, the only way they are recognized as not being Indians is because Barbara talks in her native German language. After being reunited with her mother & brother they eventually find Regina only by singing a song from their youth, Alone Yet Not Alone.  

Tracy Leininger Craven loves history and real-life stories. She retells the true story of Barbara and Regina that she had heard for years from her grandmother. She includes a lot of historical details of this real family that is caught in the cross fire of the French and Indian War.

My favorite book would have to be The Great and Terrible Quest! I learned that there is a Christian aspect to this book and for that I have to say thank you. My father being a preacher, I am never able to sign up for some books due to some stuff put into them. I would love to win this. Anyway, thank you for the opportunity to try!
