Alone Yet Not Alone by Tracy Leininger Craven is inspired by a true story, which her grandmother Leininger first told her when she was young after tracing their family’s genealogy.

In 1755, Allegheny warriors ambush sisters Barbara and Regina Leininger’s, 12 and 9, house, killing their father and older brother, kidnapping the young girls and taking them to their village.  There they were forced to adapt to the warriors’ way of living—which included dyeing their faces, wearing warrior clothes and adopting the Allegheny ways of worship.

Even more frightening, the warriors separated the sisters, leaving them terrified and bewildered. For four years Barbara, who narrates the story, only had her trust in the Lord to guide her through this tough time.

The book is geared toward YA readers and it’s an inspiring story of faith and survival.Even though it is written for tweens/teens in mind, there is quite a bit of deep material in this book.  Not so much theology or anything like that,  but more so in the history and circumstances.  Knowing it’s based on a real account makes it that much more poignant when reading through what the girls endured.

This book is definitely worth picking up and reading both for the history lesson of what happened to those at Penn’s Creek during the French-Indian War as well as for the spiritual encouragement that is voiced through the young Barbara.You might have heard about the movie version of this book, Alone Yet Not Alone thanks to some controversy after the song performed by Joni Eareckson Tada was nominated for an Oscar, and then the nomination was rescinded.  The movie, will be released in theatres on June 13, 2014.

So it’s perfect timing to get the book and read it before the movie comes out!

Thanks to Zonderkidz I am giving away one copy of Alone Yet Not Alone (the movie edition of the book which includes behind-the-scenes images from the movie and a color insert.) to one of my readers.
