"Alone, Yet Not Alone" Novel Giveaway

"Alone, Yet Not Alone" by Tracy Leininger Craven is based on the true story of two young sisters who are captured by Allegheny warriors during the Penn's Creek Massacre of 1755.


The Leininger family immigrated from Germany to escape religious persecution and start a new life in Pennsylvania.  Little did they know that their lives were going to be turned upside down.  The novel "Alone, Yet Not Alone" tells the story of the capture of Barbara and Regina Leininger (ages 12 and 9 at the time) and how "their faith became their freedom."

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."

  15. A time that I felt God's presence strongly was when I had to spend 4 days in the hospital. I could barely see, and my entire body was covered in a blistering rash, but I felt His peace. I knew that everything would turn out ok.

  18. I'd have to say when I was going through chemo 3 yrs ago. He was with me every step of the way. Without God I couldn't have got through it. His love and my families is what kept me strong. I'm cancer free 2 yrs and I give God all the Praise & Glory :)
