Alone Yet Not Alone

This incredible historic book is recommended for children ages 8 and up and is a read they are guaranteed to love. It combines great adventure with even greater values - kids won't even realize they are learning about history!

About Alone Yet Not Alone:

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.

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.

This was a very uplifting story. Faith, hope, and love were constant
companions. All the more since it was a true story.
The information on the way of life of the Allegheny people was
extremely interesting .. So I enjoyed the historical information
as well.  5 stars for this book! We purchased one read it the day it came then we gave it away to some friends. After telling several other couples we decided to purchase a couple more books as small gifts. Great book!
