This is based on a true story. It is the kind of story one would expect to have been made up. Yet, isn’t it just like God? His stories are always amazing, and his provision for his children often leaves me speechless. The almost impossibility of this story is what is amazing.
Clearly, this book is targeted for youth. While young-adults and even adults might find it interesting, youth will get the most out of it. The style of the story is simple, yet never talks down to the youth it reaches.
The faith message is strong and the point of the whole story. It is about how, even when things are at their worst, God will never leave us. We are never alone. That concept is one all of us need to be reminded of from time to time.
Barbara was a character of great faith but also wasn’t perfect. She is a character that I think many girls can relate to. She is also a good example of a strong girl, a loving sister, and a devoted daughter of Jesus.
This would be a fantastic book for homeschool kids to understand the human cost of the French and Indian war. Many homes were burned by the Indians and many women and children carried off. Void of the graphicness of some books, this captures many of the emotions that the captives experienced.
I highly recommend this to young readers who enjoy history, faith-filled fiction, and courageous girls.
I don't usually like to pay as much for books as I did for this one, but having seen and loved the film adaption I badly wanted to read the actual story. And as it turned out, the book was worth every cent!
Alone Yet Not Alone is the story (based on true events that happened to ancestors of the author) of two young German sisters who settle with their family in Pennsylvania, during the French and Indian war. Their house is invaded by hostile Indian braves, their father and brother killed, and they themselves are captured, along with their best friend, Marie; separated, and adopted into various Indian tribes. The story is about their lives as Indian maiden, and how all they had to hold on to were the Scripture verses their father had used to teach them, and the song, Alone Yet Not Alone, that their mother used to sing.
I really loved this book, it's one of the best stories I've ever read, and I would highly recommend it.
I wish I could know more of the details that have long since been buried with the people who actually lived this out, but the story that remains for subsequent generations has so much of value that it should be given to every young person to read. Even though parts of the tale have been lost over the years, I'm glad the author stuck to the facts that are known without embellishing. It doesn't need to be completed.
I'm glad that this book has been made into a movie and look forward to seeing it when I get a chance.
