Alone Yet Not Alone Book Review


My Review:
We added this book to our homeschool curriculum since we were studying about this time in history. My 9 year old LOVED it and can't wait to see the movie! It was such a good book and to be honest I hated to quit reading it every day. It is a book filled with action, adventure, and faith. I love the strength and love for Christ this family had and because Barbara and Regina were raised with such a love for the Lord these two girls were able to endure so much and still remain strong in their faith. At the end of the book it gives a page of discussion questions which also opened up great dialogue with our kids. I feel we are better people having heard this powerful story of faith.

Here is a little more info on the book (and the movie!!) and if you would like a chance to win a copy just leave a comment below:)
 
 
This historic book is recommended for children ages 8 and up and is a read they are guaranteed to love. It combines great adventure with even greater values - kids won't even realize they are learning about history!
About Alone Yet Not Alone:

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 a band of Allegheny warriors. Driven by their faith in God and the powerful bonds of family, Barbara and Regina hole 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.
The feature film will be released in theaters June 13th 2014!!!!
