Description

A miraculous survival. An extraordinary faith. Autumn 1755. 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. Until tragedy strikes with the beginning of the French-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 hold firmly to the belief that they are never alone, even in their darkest hour, and that they will be reunited again.

Our customer reviews

Alone Yet Not Alone by Tracy Leininger that sweeps readers back to the autumn of 1755 where we meet the Leininger family, German Immigrants who have come to America looking for a new life. They settle in the Blue Mountains of PA that overlook Penn's Creek. The family of six consists of Ma and Pa along with Christian,John, Barbara, and Regina. Their faith in God is strong, and they are very thankful for all their good fortune, which includes living peacefully among the Indians.With the French-Indian War brewing though things change dramatically and one afternoon two Indian braves barge into the cabin and kidnap Barbara who is twelve and Regina age nine. The girls are soon separated and taken far from home, but they never give up hope that someday they will be together again! What an amazing story of faith and family, and what makes this book even better is that it is based on a true story. The author does a wonderful job of bringing the characters to life within the pages of this story. I became swept up in the saga that the girls faced, and often wondered how or if they would ever be reunited with their mother. The author's attention to detail made the various scenes pop off the pages, I could easily envision the settings, whether it was the cabin, or an Indian village, the richness of detail allowed me to feel as if I was part of the story instead of just reading it. A great read for young and old alike, especially anyone who enjoys history. An easy to read story that is certainly reminds readers of the importance of never wavering in your faith in knowing that God is always with us even in our darkest hour.
