"Alone Yet Not Alone" Book Review and GIVEAWAY (9/11)

 *Disclosure: I was provided with a copy of "Alone Yet Not Alone" in return for my honest review.  I was not compensated in any other way.
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.
 
About The Author:
Tracy Leininger Craven loves history and retelling real-life stories in her historical fiction books. She also loves spending her free time in the great outdoors with her husband David and their four children.
 
My Review:
Even though this book was recommended for ages 8 and up, I still read it to my 6 and 7 year olds.  I'll admit there were times that the mood of the book was quite intense and I wasn't sure how the kids would handle it, but they absolutely LOVED it!  They never wanted me to stop reading.  I didn't even want to stop reading...but bedtime got in the way. ;-)

Not only was the book a page-turner, but being a true story, it was also full of history and, even more importantly, showed a strong faith through struggles that we could never even imagine.  I was proud to be able to read this book to the kids and give them a glimpse into the past and let them see how God can do anything if we believe.

I strongly urge you to get this book to read with your kids.  You'll be glad you did!
