“alone yet not alone” book giveaway

alone yet not alone

Today I’m doing a giveaway of the young adult novel, Alone Yet Not Alone, by Tracy Leininger Craven. Published by Zonderkidz (Zondervan), this book is based on a true story of two sisters during the French and Indian War.

I enjoyed the book and its historical context.  It reminded me quite a bit of the novel/movie The Last of the Mohicans. Since it takes place in my neck of the woods (Pennsylvania/Ohio) in 1755, I found it really interesting to track their adventure on the map. When Barbara is taken captive by the Indians, I was inspired by her unshakeable faith that God would bring her through even the toughest of situations.

The story has just been made into a movie, Alone Yet Not Alone, which will hit select theaters on September 27th. It has been awarded 5 Doves from the Dove Foundation. The book includes some photos of the movie.


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 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.”

About The Author:
