Alone Yet Not Alone Review & Giveaway

 About the book

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.

My thoughts

I love learning about history and reading about the accounts of people who experienced various incidents. So I was really excited to read this book because it is a true family's account of their experience with the French and Indian war.

This book didn't disappoint. Once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down. I wanted to know what would happen to the two sisters, Barbara and Regina, who were taken from their family by Allegheny warriors. I loved how their faith in their Lord was what helped them to stay strong through their trial and is what helped them believe they would see their family again.

The title of the book is based upon a song, Alone Yet Not Alone, which helped the girls to remember Christ and focus on their faith. I loved how the book talked a lot about religion because I am a religious person and could relate to the teachings.

I thought the author did an excellent job at writing about the horrible things that happened such as the girls seeing a human scalp and someone being burned at the stake without getting into lots of gruesome details. This is perfect especially for younger audiences and for adults like me who hate gory details.

This book is definitely uplifting and it inspired me to work on my faith during hardships. I definitely recommend reading this book. And, I plan on seeing the movie!

  1. I look for a leader to be honest and know what he is talking about. He must know how to lead.

  2. I always loved learning about the Crusades, the Crucible, the Salem Witch Trials...those type of things

  3. I especially like to learn about the 1930 - 1950 era of history.
