Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 4-6-Barbara and Regina Leininger were from a family of German immigrants who were living in the Blue Mountains of Pennsylvania in 1755, and they were captured by Indians during the French and Indian War. This novel, based on their experiences, focuses on the faith that sustained them during their captivity. Given to different tribes, the sisters are separated and do not see each other again for close to 10 years. Although Barbara is treated well by Galasko, the Indian brave who wants to marry her, life is hard. She never loses her determination to escape, and after several years, she and three other captives manage to flee successfully. What could have been an interesting story of survival is diminished by the book's simplistic tone and lack of nuance. The settlers are beautiful and compassionate, while many Indians are unattractive, cruel, and troubled because they don't believe in one god. The depiction of them is beyond biased and there is no attempt to provide any historical background or explanation for their actions. It will be difficult to find an audience for this book.-Kefira Phillipe, Nichols Middle School, Evanston, ILα(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

In this story that takes us back in time to the beginning of the French and Indian War we travel to the beautiful and peaceful Blue Mountains of Pennsylvania. There Tracy Leininger Craven introduces us to two of her brave ancestors, Barbara and Regina Leininger. During this peaceful time with the Indians no one would have dreamed the unimaginable horrors that were on the way to this quiet area.

This story tells us how these two precious girls were taken captive after their father and brother was killed trying to protect them. Sometime after they were taken they were separated and neither knew if the other had survived. But the memories of their family and their faith and trust in God sustained them through those horrible years. During this time they both remembered the scripture they were taught and the beautiful hymns their mother would sing to them.

This story is one of a deep faith in God which these girls learned from a very young age. It is a faith that kept them through their darkest hours when they were snatched from their family and it kept them through the long years they were held in captivity.

While reading this story I found myself being drawn in by the way in which Tracy tells it. Her details are very good and I found that I was able to picture the scenes as I read them. I was deeply moved while reading it; it brought me to tears reading what they had to endure and then to utmost joy to know these young ladies, even at the cost of their own lives, never gave up their faith in God and His power to deliver. Thank you Tracy for sharing this powerful story with us.

I was given a copy of this book by Zondervan in exchange for my honest opinion.

"Alone Yet Not Alone," is one of the most readable books I have ever read. After chapter three it is impossible to lay it down. It assumes Christian virtues, values, and actions and presents them in such a way that it makes you want to assimulate them into your own life. It is a definite must read for all early to late teens. It probably will become a staple in the Christian families library.

A Kid's Review on May 9, 2006
Format: Hardcover
I loved this book! My friend told me to read it, and I did. It was so exciting that I couldn't put it down! This book is highly engrafted in spiritual truth, and the plot is wonderful. The way that the leininger family depends on God and trusts Him always and the way that they care for eachother and their friends is very heart warming. This is a definate must read for all ages. If you have read and liked "Standing in the Light" a Dear America diary, then you will love this.

I ordered this book for my 11 year old daughter who loves American history and Indian culture. I read it first and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Barbara Leininger is torn from her family during an Indian raid and forced to adapt to the Indian culture. Before she is forced into marriage with an Indian brave, she escapes with 3 other captives. Together, they must travel 300+ miles on foot to reach freedom. Living as an Indian was not easy nor was her escape. Yet through it all, she maintained her faith and her determination to see her younger sister again.

This is an inspiring story for everyone. I am thankful for Zondervan who provided me a free copy of this book in exchange for my review which I freely give.

it is an intriguing story, but I was disappointed not to learn more about the Indian culture into which the girls were submerged. It is simply told, inspirational, but better for an immature audience.
