Are you looking for a great living history book for your tween or high school student? Then Alone Yet Not Alone is a great candidate! I am already a fan of Leininger’s writing and this book was no exception. Her writing style brought to life this amazing story of how faith can sustain you through anything.
About Alone Yet Not Alone (novelization):
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.
I would highly recommend this book for use in your homeschool as a supplement to Native American Studies or American History. You could easily create a unit study to go along with this or even create some copywork and essays to do with it. Our 8th grade daughter also read the book and she could not put it down. She read it in one sitting and it sparked more interest in Native American Studies for her – and I gladly obliged!
