Alone Yet Not Alone
Their faith became their freedom. Based on the inspirational true story of Barbara and Regina Leininger, two immigrant sisters forced to embark on a journey of faith that will lead them through the darkness of war into the light of freedom. Seeking religious freedom in America, a devout Christian family from Germany settles in the peaceful Pennsylvania colony - only to find themselves caught in the crossfire of the French & Indian War. Following a merciless raid on their settlement, daughters Barbara and Regina are abducted, separated, then raised by their Delaware captors in the harsh Ohio wilderness. Now, only their devotion to each other and faith in the Lord can lead them through their darkest hours and back to freedom in this inspirational, true story.
Wow, what a movie. Not exactly an easy film to watch but very moving and a powerful story of faith and forgiveness. I had been wanting to watch this movie for some time, since reading the movie tie-in book, and was pleased when the library FINALLY got a copy. I sat down and watched it with my parents, one of the few PG-13's that I've actually wanted to watch. No, a huge production with a gazillion dollar budget, yes the wolves were a little cheesy, but what it does have going for it is that, not only is it based on a TRUE story, but it is a powerful story of not losing faith during some of the most horrible and evil circumstances imaginable. This is not a movie for your little kids to watch but I would recommend it for teenagers and adults, use it to talk with your kids about trials and that with God nothing is impossible and no situation is too hopeless. This film would also make a great supplement for a homeschool history class/unit. Alone Yet Not Alone is a must watch for any Christian family.
I'm alone, yet not alone.
God's the light that will guide me home.
With His love and tenderness,
Leading through the wilderness,
And wherever I may roam,
I'm alone, yet not alone.

Barbara Leininger: Who created Sky-Woman? And who fathered her two sons?
Galasko: I do not know.
Barbara Leininger: My God created the heavens and earth and all living things. He sent his only son Jesus, to forgive our sins so that we can know him.
Galasko: I do not know this Jesus. The White Man's God is strong. White men have good weapons. White Man's God made Susquehanna more graceful than the deer. You have the courage of a panther. For this, He is a good God. But Galasko is Indian and Susquehanna is now Indian. You must believe in Indian God. Galasko, son of the Great Chief, child of the Great Spirit, wishes to make Susquehanna his own. We would be very happy. And raise many great warriors.
Barbara Leininger: Galasko has asked to marry... Susquehanna.
Marie Le Roy: You are not Susquehanna. Your name is Barbara. You would have to worship the Indian gods.
Barbara Leininger: No one can change what I believe in my heart. Marie, do I really have a choice?
Barbara Leininger: He killed your family. Your father's scalp hangs over the door to Galasko's longhouse. How could you do this?
