I was recently sent the book “Alone yet not alone” based on a true story of a new family in the wilds of a new born america. I requested this book because it seemed like a book I would appreciate reading based on it’s historical fiction nature.
In the end I couldn’t get passed chapter 2. This is my own reading style that blocks me, not the story line or concept. It would seem that there was just not enough suspense or action in the building of the story. So that is just me.
However it was written for the tween in mind and when I let my tweens read it – they may say something different. If they do I will let you know.
With that aside, I am still looking forward to the movie that is coming out in September of this year. You can see where it is showing here: http://seatzy.com/main/moviedetail/alone-yet-not-alone
From the author:
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.
