Alone Yet Not Alone by Tracy Leininger Craven

I find myself turning to living books more and more as I homeschool my children, and I’m always looking for one that I can read aloud during our time together so all of us can enjoy it. Alone Yet Not Alone: Their faith became their freedom by Tracy Leininger Craven certainly fit the bill! It gave us the opportunity to see the French and Indian War, and the Penn’s Creek Massacre in particular, from a first-person perspective as the author shared the story that had been passed down orally in her family.

The book shares the story of sisters Barbara and Regina Leininger, who are kidnapped by Indians and are eventually separated. It’s the story of their survival, their struggles to maintain hope and their faith while living as slaves in a culture completely foreign to them, and their plans to try to escape. It is a suspenseful tale!

I read this book aloud to my children, who are 9 and 10 years old. I started out reading one chapter a day, but they couldn’t get enough and kept begging for “just one more chapter!” I obliged them as often as I could because I wanted to find out what happened next too! After listening to the book, they’re looking forward to the movie, which releases this summer. (You can find out more about that on the movie website.)

    We are studying early American history next year in our homeschool. This would be a wonderful living book to add to our reading list. I am always looking forward to books I can share with my children. What a terrific giveaway!

    We would love to have this book for our read aloud time. My daughter LOVES reading but I am always searching for something that will keep my sons attention and this sounds like a great book to do just that. Thanks so much!

    I’m hoping to cover this time period with my kids at the beginning of next school year. I have heard so many good things about it, I can’t wait to read it!
