I got this book from FlyByPromotions and read it in only 2 days. For me, that’s crazy, I never have any time to sit and read, but made a real attempt to finish this one, because it was incredible. Was a great story and amazed me how when these people were going through these horrific events, they were still able to know the Lord was there with them. It really made me think, how those of us in the regular world and in our normal lives sometimes doubt that Jesus is here with us and there is no way that we go through what these people did. To be under attack, have your family and friends killed, be captured, try to escape and be caught, the story goes on – it blesses me to know that someone going through this horrible thing could still know that God was there. There must be more Job’s in this world then I thought. Great story and would be a good one for a young adult bible study, etc.
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.
