The message of faith comes through in the novel loud and clear. Barbara believes they can make it through with Christ's strength and that no matter what happens their faith in Jesus Christ can never be taken away from them.
Barbara reassures her younger sister, Regina: "God will always be with us - even in our most difficult trials." Unfortunately the sisters are separated. Barbara is left clinging to the hope that her sister's faith will remain strong and that she will not lose the song in her heart: "Alone, yet not alone."
This novel is an easy read and is aimed at pre-teens. Keep in mind that it has some mature themes that may not be appropriate for all readers -- although those scenes are not described very graphically.
This novel is a "Special Movie Edition" and so it also includes photos from the movie which came out this summer. Here is a look at the trailer for those who have yet to see the movie:
Some interesting topics for discussion include the origin of the world according to the Allegheny people and their spiritual beliefs.
The novel has a strong emphasis on the need for a Saviour and on the redemptive power of Jesus' blood. Tracy Leininger Craven states: "It is my prayer that those who read this book will be encouraged to run the race of life with undaunted faith and endurance -- drawing strength from the author and finisher of our faith, Jesus Christ."
