This book was a page turner. My older children used to own and read many books detailing the true stories of white captives of indian tribes, so I was looking forward to receiving this one. It did not dissappoint, and I am planning to read it aloud to my grades 1-8 crowd (although everyone will probably listen in) The great part about this book is that there is a movie coming out on September 27th! Movies are always a great way to end book or series, especially one that was read together as a family. It is always neat to see how the story is portrayed in film. I will always and forever be a book person, but movies give a new perspective Please go check out the trailer in the links at the bottom of this post!
About the book/movie:
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.
