Here is a short description:
"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. Written by: Tracy Leininger Craven"
Books and movies are hard to review because it is hard to share just how good a book is without spoiling it for the reader. I will say that this book, Alone Yet Not Alone, definitely gets 5 stars from me. The book is listed as juvenile fiction, the target audience is probably middle school through high school, but I enjoyed it as an adult. It was an easy read, and it quickly captured my attention and emotions. I couldn't put the book down and finished it in one sitting because I had to know what happened! Barbara's faith and perseverance touched my heart and encouraged me in my faith.
The review and giveaway are for the book, but the movie for this book is coming to theaters on September 27, 2013. If there is a movie based on a book I like to read the book first and then watch the movie. My husband is opposite and likes to watch the movie before he reads the book. Either way, my suggestion is to read/watch both! I loved the book and can't wait to see how they did the movie.
