    I read Alone Yet Not Alone as a girl of twelve or so A gripping story from the beginning, Alone Yet Not Alone takes place in 1755 during the French and Indian War A band of Indians sweeps into Buffalo Valley, where they burn the Leiningers cabin and take young sisters Barbara and Regina captive The two are quickly separated and the story follows Barbara, the older of the two, as she becomes like one of the Indians daughters Although cared for by the tribe, escape is constantly on her mind She must find a way to locate her little sister But even if she manages to escape, she ll have countless other obstacles to overcome She ll be lost in a vast wilderness without food or sense of direction, and still in danger of being recaptured It s clear that she ll have to rely on something than her own strength and determination if she s to survive As her painful journey continues, Barbara learns first hand of the power of a God Who never leaves nor forsakes, a God Who comforts when there is no human love to be found, a God Who is enough in and of Himself Follow Barbara as she experiences God s compassion and love through severe trials that would be unbearable without Him.This true story reminded me of wha...

    Warning the following review may contain spoilersI don t usually like to pay as much for books as I did for this one, but having seen and loved the film adaption I badly wanted to read the actual story And as it turned out, the book was worth every cent Alone Yet Not Alone is the story based on true events that happened to ancestors of the author of two young German sisters who settle with their family in Pennsylvania, during the French and Indian war Their house is invaded by hostile Indian braves, their father and brother killed, and they themselves are captured, along...

    Age Appropriate For 8 and upBest for Ages 8 15This is based on a true story It is the kind of story one would expect to have been made up Yet, isn t it just like God His stories are always amazing, and his provision for his children often leaves me speechless The almost impossibility of this story is what is amazing.Clearly, this book is targeted for youth While young adults and even adults might find it interesting, youth will get the most out of it The style of the story is simple, yet never talks down to the youth it reaches.The faith message is strong and the point of the whole story It is about how, even when things are at their worst, God will never leave us We are never alone That concept is one all of us need to be reminded of from time to time.Barbara was a character of great faith but also wasn t perfect She is a ...

    Is anyone else as fascinated with Indian lore as I am This based on a true story book takes place during the Penn s Creek Massacre of 1755 during the French and Indian war Alone Yet Not Alone is the survival story of three girls who are captured by Indians and their quest to return to their families It is also the story of the author s, Tracy Leininger Craven s, family.Theology God is always with youThe theme of Alone Yet Not Alone is based on Deuteronomy 8 2 Remember how the Lord your God led you through the wilderness for these forty years, humbling you and testing you to prove your character, and to find out whether or not you would obey his commands NLT Even during impossible, horrible situations when it feels like God has forsaken us, He is still faithful He can take what others meant for evil and change it to our good Genesis 50 20 Our job is to remember His promise and focus on Him.Rating PGI debated giving this book a G rating There is nothing gratuitous in Alone Yet Not Alone, but it deals with real life There is violence and murder well handled and children are forcibly kidnapped So I will leave it to your discretion I plan to let my 8 yo daughter read the book I like that it is histori...
