Loved it! 
Yup, no lingering opinions here.  Let's cut to the cookie.  This was a great book!  I finished it in two days.    The story is captivating and the writing is gripping.  For real.

Alone Yet Not Alone by Tracy Leininger Craven is a story rich in historical details.  It is filled with adventure, suspense, family values, faith, and courage.  Here is a brief description...

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. 

A beautiful read for ages 8 and up, this story is sure to inspire and captivate.  I would even find this to be a great family story to be read aloud together.  I couldn't stop talking about the book while reading it and now my 13 year old son is getting ready to pick it up.  We love to read the book before the movie guessed it....the movie is set to release on September 27, 2013.  Click HERE to find the closest theater showing to you.  I can't wait!
