Alone Yet Not Alone is a wonderful kids book that even this mom enjoyed. The author wrote the first draft when she was nine listening to stories from her family. This book is her story of her family and the Penn’s Creek Massacre.
As a reader, you are drawn into the first couple of pages. It is a quick read book and you really want to know what happens to the characters. Since this story is based on actual events told first person through the family, it is an excellent living book for your children. The movie will be out on Sept 27th. If it follows the book it should be clean and suitable for children. I would assume that there are some graphic scenes from the massacre.
I have one book to give away to a reader – leave a comment to enter!
About Alone Yet Not Alone (novelization):
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.
