Review and Giveaway!
Its Autumn 1755. Cold, hungry, and afraid, Barbara and Regina Leininger wonder if they will ever see their family again as they are carried away by their brutish captors. Only one thing keeps the sisters going, and that is their faith in the One who they believe will never leave them.
Alone Yet Not Alone by Tracy Leininger Craven is the true story of a family shaken by the Penn’s Creek Massacre. Soon to be released as a film on September 27th, Alone Yet Not Alone is an inspiring story rich in historic details and bursting with Biblical truths.
What I liked…
I enjoyed seeing the story through the older sister, Barbara’s eyes. Her struggle to watch out for her sister Regina, as well as find her family, moved me. Barbara makes a great role model for her unshakable faith. More stories like hers should be put in textbooks. I know I plan to integrate Alone Yet Not Alone into our home school curriculum when my girls are old enough. Not only will they be getting a history lesson, but they’ll also be reading about one of the many women whose faith in her Creator comforted and kept her going, even in the darkest of circumstances.
We should all have a passion like Barbara’s. I am so excited to see what the new film will bring to the story. I particularly enjoyed the full color insert in this edition of Alone Yet Not Alone. I got a sneak peak at the making of the film, as well as a visual of some of the main scenes taken from the book.
Alone Yet Not Alone is recommended for children ages eight an up and I believe is one the whole family will love. It will enrich your child’s history lessons on the French and Indian War. You could plan a whole unit around this amazing story. Alone Yet Not Alone contains discussion questions at the end as well. I highly recommend it to homeschoolers in particular for its ease and enjoyment of reading, on top of its place in American history.
