Alone Yet Not Alone Review + Giveaway 5/3 US/CAN

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 a band of Allegheny warriors. Driven by their faith in God and the powerful bonds of family, Barbara and Regina hole 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.

My Thoughts:
Alone Yet Not Alone is a book which is meant for children ages 8 and up. I wanted to read it to my daughters but since it's intended for children ages 8 and up, I read it first. My 2 daughters are just 3 and 5 years old and there are parts in the book which are not appropriate for their age yet so I will hold off on reading the book to them yet. :)

Alone Yet Not Alone may not be appropriate for them yet but in my case, I loved the story. Even if the book is intended for children ages 8 and up, I must say it's a nice short story for adults as well. After reading the book, I felt good and the book reminded me to never lose hope and to always have faith in God. I can't imagine going through what Barbara, Regina and the other young people went through and in spite of those trials, they kept their faith and kept on believing.

Alone Yet Not Alone is very captivating and once I started reading, I didn't stop until I finished it. I love how Tracy Leininger Craven managed to keep Alone Yet Not Alone interesting enough to make me read it in one sitting. I admit, I'm not really a fan of fictional books based on true stories but this book made me a bit teary-eyed and a bit emotional.

I can't wait to watch the film when it comes out on June 13, 2014 but I probably wouldn't bring my daughters with me since they're still young.
