Alone Yet Not Alone
by Tracy Leininger Craven
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.
The feature film will be released in theaters June 13th 2014!!!!

About The Author:
Tracy Leininger Craven loves history and retelling real-life stories in her historical fiction books. She also loves spending her free time in the great outdoors with her husband David and their three children.
Alone Yet Not Alone is a book that I wish had been out a few years back when I was a kid. I would have loved having my dad read this one aloud and I would have later read it on my own as well.
There is adventure, danger, faith, bravery, and to top it off it is based on a true story. As a lover of history I am always in search of and glad to find well-written stories that not only teach real historical facts but do so in an entertaining way that catches and keeps the attention of the reader.
There is nothing graphic but neither are things sugar-coated. Tracy Leininger Craven has done an excellent job turning a difficult piece of history into an uplifting children's book. I was very impressed with this story and even as an adult I not only enjoyed it but also was on the edge of my seat for much of it.
A must read for kids of all ages that love history!
